I had pain and cramping in my legs. I thought it was just a sign of age but it was actually peripheral arterial disease (PAD). I went for treatment and now I’m back to my daily walks and my legs feel great.
My legs have been cramping and feeling weak for a while. I thought it was because I was tired from standing, then I got a bit worried when one of my legs started feeling colder then the other. I completed a questionnaire that helped me figure out that I might have PAD – something I had never heard of. I booked an appointment to have myself checked and the doctor told me I needed to have a procedure. I was worried but he assured me that I had nothing to worry about as it is a quick outpatient treatment. He was right – I am recovering and I don’t feel the cramps and coldness in my legs anymore. Thank you.
