Peripheral Vascular Disease
Help from your Podiatrist in Orange County California. Peripheral artery disease is a common circulatory problem in which narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to your limbs.
Leg pain when walking (intermittent claudication)
Pain when laying flat on the bed
Peripheral artery disease is also likely to be a sign of a more widespread accumulation of fatty deposits in your arteries (atherosclerosis).
This condition may be reducing blood flow to your heart and brain, as well as your legs. Often, you can successfully relieve early symptoms of peripheral artery disease by exercising, eating a healthy diet, and quitting tobacco.
