Should I talk to my doctor about stagnant anoxia?

Talk to your doctor about stagnant anoxia if you are experiencing such symptoms as confusion, lapses in judgment, shortness of breath, or difficulty using your motor skills. Speak to a medical professional if you've recently been exposed to extremely cold temperatures or may have contracted ergot poisoning. These things may also lead to stagnant anoxia.
