Need help please?

Hi guys

The nurse told me to wrape a bandage around my foot (where the AVM is) she said it will help to make it smaller, and today i did but there is this weird feeling, i feel like my heart is beating in my foot? its not painful but only little pressure..did that happen with anyone before?? what should i do?

Aylen, what you are feeling is the artery feeding the AVM pulsing in your foot. This pulsing or "bruit" is one of the ways a peripheral AVM is diagnosed. My son's, for example, was diagnosed when a doctor held her stethoscope up to his forehead and heard the pulse.
