If you have poor circulation in your legs, it could be Peripheral Artery Disease, or P.A.D. This is a serious condition that more than doubles your risk of heart attack or stroke.

P.A.D. is when the arteries in your legs begin to narrow from plaque and the flow of oxygen-rich blood is restricted. Plaque is a buildup of cholesterol and other materials in the walls of your arteries. If this is happening in your legs, it is likely happening in the arteries in your heart or brain. If the plaque ruptures, clots can block the flow of blood to your heart or your brain, resulting in heart attack or stroke. About 60% of P.A.D. patients have blockages in their arteries near their heart or brain as well as in their legs.
If you have symptoms including pain, cramps and a tired feeling or heaviness in your legs, thighs or buttocks when you walk a short distance or exercise, it could be P.A.D. Don't dismiss them as a natural part of aging, get your free info pack on P.A.D. and explore your treatment options right away.
