What are the Biggest Warning Signs of PAD
Dr. Donikyan explains the biggest warning signs of PAD. Simple things to look for are skin changes, changes in the color of your skin, wounds that you developed that might become difficult to heal, cramping when you walk, discomfort. If all of a sudden, when you had been able to walk five blocks and now you can only walk four or three without developing cramps in your buttock region or your calves or your thighs, those are signs that you might not be getting enough blood flow down to the muscles in your legs when you’re walking. You can also develop pain when you’re resting. That’s a more serious sign. If you’re sitting on the couch or not exerting yourself but you’re having pain, that’s a sign that there’s an issue with blood getting down to your feet or your lower extremities. So all those things, the skin changes, difficulty walking, cramping, and rest pain, those are major indications that something’s not quite right in terms of the amount of blood flow that’s getting to your feet.
