Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a narrowing or blockage of the arteries that limits blood flow to your extremities, caused by plaque buildup. PAD is a common problem and generally occurs in the legs.
Common Signs and Symptoms of PAD:
Leg pain with walking, relieved with rest
Leg numbness or weakness
Sores/wounds on your legs or feet that are slow to heal
30-50% of patients with PAD have no signs or symptoms
