Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) is a common circulatory problem in which narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to your limbs. When you develop PAD, your extremities don't receive enough blood flow to keep up with demand. This causes symptoms, most notably leg pain when walking (claudication). Peripheral artery disease symptoms include:
Painful cramping in your hip, thigh or calf muscles after certain activities, such as walking or climbing stairs (claudication)
Leg numbness or weakness
Coldness in your lower leg or foot, especially when compared with the other side
Sores on your toes, feet or legs that won't heal
A change in the color of your legs
Hair loss or slower hair growth on your feet and legs
Slower growth of your toenails
Shiny skin on your legs
No pulse or a weak pulse in your legs or feet
At Sole Podiatry Center, we perform quick, non-invasive vascular testing that enables earlier disease detection and accurate risk assessment for the above mentioned critical vascular conditions.
