Peripheral Artery Disease and peripheral vascular disease is a slow circulation disorder when organs such as the brain, heart and legs cannot receive adequate blood flow for normal function.
Symptoms of PAD/PVD may include:
- Changes in the skin
- Diminished pulses in the legs and the feet
- Gangrene (dead tissue due to lack of blood flow)
- Hair loss on the legs
- Non-healing wounds over pressure points, such as heels or ankles
- Numbness, weakness, or heaviness in muscles
- Pain at rest, commonly in the toes and at night while lying flat
- Pallor when the legs are elevated
- Reddish-blue discoloration of the extremities
- Restricted mobility
- Severe pain
- Thickened, opaque toenails
