If you experience leg pain while walking or exercising, you may have peripheral vascular disease (or PVD). If it affects only your arteries, then you have peripheral artery disease (or PAD). Either disease may present with no symptoms, which is the scariest scenario. Both PVD and PAD are very common blood vessel diseases, and if you have either one, your extremities don’t receive enough blood. The Cardiology Manhattan Center has some of the best NYC cardiologists. They can diagnose and treat this and other heart conditions.

Arteries are the blood vessels that carry blood from your heart to the rest of your body. If you have peripheral artery disease, you have a disorder that causes a buildup of fatty deposits in your arteries, narrowing them and restricting the blood flow to your legs and abdomen. Eventually, a blood clot forms and no further blood can flow through that area. Blood clots in other parts of your body that break loose can cause a heart attack or stroke.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that more than eight million Americans have peripheral artery disease or PAD. As many as 12 to 20 percent of those over the age of 60 are affected by this disorder. So leg pain isn’t something to ignore. When you visit your cardiology center in NYC in Manhattan, make sure to mention even the slightest discomfort in your legs. It’s not a normal part of aging.
