PAD Symptoms and Risk Factors

If you have cramping, tingling or weakness in your legs, you might have peripheral artery disease, also known as PAD. PAD can lead to leg or foot amputation and even heart attack or stroke. Early detection is key!

If you have trouble with your feet or legs, talk to a doctor about PAD and ask to take off your socks.

Symptoms of PAD

The pain of PAD often goes away when you stop exercising. Many people with PAD have no symptoms or mistake their symptoms for something else.
