Those who have legs that hurt from PAD (peripheral artery disease) should understand that this is a very serious condition that is directly related to heart failure. Peripheral artery disease can be described as a heart attack in the leg, in reality it is caused by artery blockage and it is extremely serious. Those who suffer from this condition may have tired or heavy lower limbs. If your legs legs that hurt from PAD it may be a serious warning of a coming heart attack.
The silent heart attack
Peripheral artery disease is very sneaky illness in that it is very hard to diagnosis, the only real warning sign is heavy and tired legs. When the legs feel very weighted down it is a sign of artery blockage, this damage does not show up on an EKG (electrocardiogram test). An EKG is the standard test to diagnosis the condition of the heart. Artery blockage stops the blood from flowing to the heart and it causes heart failure, weak pulse and for many death. The oxygen rich blood does not have a chance to to reach the heart and this causes deep health problems. When the legs hurt from PAD it is a sign of trouble
What to do about Peripheral artery disease
The first thing to do about peripheral artery disease is to reverse the plaque from the arteries, surgery is a last resort that has very dubious result. It is a very serious operation that can cause heart attack. Diet can reverse the condition in many, in Europe there is a diet that has been reversing peripheral artery disease without surgery, the diet causes the arteries to expand naturally, this is allowing more oxygen rich blood to flow though, this causes the legs to become lighter and less painful. This was shown in Berlin
