Peripheral arterial disease is a condition that can potentially be life-threatening if it is not caught early. Knowing what signs and symptoms to look for becomes more important as you age.
Watch this video to get an overview of the red flags to look for that may indicate peripheral arterial disease, or PAD. If you experience painful cramping in your foot, calf, thigh, or leg when walking which dissipates when coming to rest, you may have PAD. Heaviness in the legs and pain when lying down at night may also indicate PAD or peripheral vascular disease.
It is recommended that you seek advice from a trained podiatrist if you have concerns about foot pain. Call Village Podiatry at (678) 372-1835 to schedule an appointment.
