Of course I am not a doctor, but personally I would look for a good traditional Chinese medicine practitioner for that  type of situation. They seem to have a better handle on things like circulation and digestion than western medicine from what I have seen. Either that or smoke a lot of weed and climb slabs while doing a handstand.  :D
