While the symptoms of PAD can range from mild to severe, it’s important that you know what to look out for.
Peripheral Artery Disease causes blockages in the arteries which deprive the lower extremities of oxygen. These blockages can produce uncomfortable symptoms like hip pain, thigh pain, or calf pain which comes on with exercise and is relieved with rest.
Those dealing with advanced forms of PAD often have foot or leg pain in the evening which is relieved with dangling, a critical sign of lack of circulation.
The symptoms can also progress to open wounds or gangrenous changes.
If any of these symptoms concern you, please visit take our PAD symptom screener. After taking the screener you’ll get your PAD score and have the opportunity to schedule an appointment for a comprehensive PAD screening where I’ll evaluate your symptoms, make a diagnosis, and provide a treatment plan.
