Millions of people every year are diagnosed with vascular disease. It can affect your quality of life and may be fatal without proper treatment.
It’s important to seek a vascular specialist to properly diagnose and treat your issue based on a personalized plan of care. You can address this issue before it turns into an emergency.
How can you spot vascular issues?
The most common symptom of vascular disease is leg discomfort—especially painful cramping that occurs with exercise and is relieved by rest. You may feel it in one or both legs. Other symptoms of vascular disease may include:
Changes in the skin, including decreased skin temperature or thin, brittle shiny skin on the legs and feet
Diminished pulses in the legs and the feet
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 (described as burning or aching) at rest, commonly in the toes and at night while lying flat
