You could be presenting a peripheric artireal illness. This is a common circulatory problem in which the stretching
of the arteries reduce the blood flow to the extremities. These extremities-
generally the legs- don’t receive enough blood flow to satisfy the demand. This
causes the symptoms, especially leg pain when walking known as intermittent
arterial disease is likely to be a sign of widespread accumulation of fatty
deposits in the arteries (atherosclerosis). This condition may reduce blood flow
to your heart and brain, as well as the legs.
you can successfully treat peripheral artery disease by quitting smoking,
exercising and eating a healthy diet. But of not being consistent and not
giving importance to the symptoms can have the impact of the loss or limb
amputation. So a timely intervention could save the extremity by reducing the
risk of limb amputation and other complications.
