Heavy Legs: A common sign of coming health troubles

Heavy Legs

Heavy Legs

Heavy legs are probably the most common sign of heart troubles; sadly leg heaviness is still ignored by most people. Cardiovascular disease is still the number one illness which results in the loss of life, the heart is a medical marvel which does so much for our health, yet many still ignored the signs of cardiovascular disease. Constant tired and heavy legs can be warning of a dangerous health condition. The cardio affect in the lower limbs Boxers and other professional athletes can usually signal the approaching end of their careers when the legs start to get heavier, less mobility in the lower limbs is a sign that the professional athlete has begun to slow down. It is not hand speed but actually leg endurance which is the most common indicator of athletic decline. People over the age of 35 usually have a build up of plaque in the arteries leading to heart; it is this plaque which is responsible for the feeling of heavy legs that so many people suffer from. The arteries are the highway to health, but over time the passage way becomes clogged, this condition affects the thin as well as the overweight. It is possible to be what is concerned in good health, yet still have a dangerous build up of plaque in the arteries; this is why heart attack and stroke can be a sudden killer. Leg arterial plaque buildup is called P.A.D (peripheral artery disease), it is often not diagnosed, and sadly many die from heart related problems. Checking your cholesterol levels are a good indicator of any artery blockage, it is important to have a normal LDL (this is known as the bad cholesterol).   It must be stated that there are people who did not have very high LDL and still were found to have clogged leg arteries.

It is crucial to listen to the lower limbs, heavy legs or tiredness in the lower limbs all may signs of a coming heart attack. Regardless of your age, the legs should not exhibit constant heaviness; it may be a sign of cardiovascular troubles.

Why do I have Tingling in legs? It can mean big problems

Tingling in the legs can mean heart troubles

Tingling in the legs can mean heart troubles

Tingling in the legs should always be taken very seriously, this is due to the fact that the lower limbs are a very important indicator of heart health. Numbness and a pins and needles felling should always be viewed as a sign of other possible health complications. Tingling in the legs are often related to poor health in the arteries and nerves of the lower limb. In this post we will address the way in which lower limb complications may be indicative of other health problems.

Diabetics often ignore the lower limb troubles which are associated with their high blood sugar. High blood sugar breaks down the inner lining of the arteries, and causes an increased build up of plaque; it is artery blockage which is at the root of most lower limb problems. Those who do not have diabetes but are experiencing trouble in the legs should be aware that this can be a signal of cardiovascular complications.

Today, it is not uncommon to see people in their early 40’s who are exhibiting significant blockage in the arteries of the legs and heart. Constant tingling in the legs can be a sign of heart troubles.

What is most significant is the fact that a person can be of an average weight, with a good cholesterol and still have artery blockage. 

It should be noted that the “tingle feeling” could also be an indication of nerve damage in the lower limbs. Be aware that nerve fiber ending can erode leading to a numb or tingle in the lower limb. The most significant factor which causes this the erosion is being overweight, diabetic, or having high blood pressure. As noted earlier thin people can still have undetected artery blockage.

We would like to make it clear that any constant tingling in the legs, can always be an indication of coming heart troubles.

LEG PAIN AT NIGHT can signal a serious problem

pain at night pix padLeg pain at night should not be taken lightly, those who are experiencing this painful symptom should be aware that it can be a sign of a very serious circulatory problem. Millions of people are at danger due to narrowing arteries which cause the uncomfortable limb condition. Painful lower limbs are the number one sign of a coming heart attack, many people ignore the leg pain at night but this can be a very serious condition.

 

More people are suffering for P.A.D. (peripheral artery disease), this is a condition where the artery lining becomes damaged, leading to buildup of cholesterol and other lipids, causing the arterial wall inner lining to become rough and thickened. This accumulation is called atherosclerosis, or “hardening of the arteries. This website is the most popular in over 10 countries in part because we have revealed that the health of the legs are directly related to the health of the heart, the circulation to the lower limbs are a direct indication of cardiovascular condition. Do not ignore leg pain at night as it is often related to artery plaque causing blockage in the limb, as the legs gets less oxygen rich blood a painful condition ensues.

 

The relationship to the heart

 

Any continuous painful lower leg condition must be addressed immediately to avoid further complications. According to University of Michigan Cardiovascular Center expert Dr. James Stanley MD this is a condition that directly affects the heart.

“This is the hallmark of a disease that’s all over,” says Dr. Stanley, “It’s like gray hair – you don’t just get it on one side of your head. So if you’ve got this kind of blockage in your leg, you’re going to have it other places.”

 

The doctor spoke of a patient who had been suffering from back and pain leg at night but assumed it was nothing, the 57 year old patient discovered from a doctor’s tests revealed the true cause; blockages in the blood vessels of his legs. In fact, the arteries going to his lower extremities were almost 100 percent blocked.

 

There is some good news:

 

Thousands of people in Europe have been using a specialized diet created specifically for lower limb circulatory complications, it is the only created diet that has been shown to naturally stop leg pain at night related to circulation blockage.

I have Peripheral Artery Disease: An answer

Can you avoid PAD surgery?

Can you avoid P.A.D surgery?

We received a letter from a middle aged man titled “ I have Peripheral Artery Disease”, after many years of heavy and tired legs a routine check up allowed him to discover this very serious disease. Millions of people are living in danger of a heart attack due to the fact that they are unaware that their tired legs or shortness of breath could be an indication of Peripheral Artery Disease{P.A.D), sadly many are living in danger because of undiagnosed P.A.D.

 

The silent heart attack in the legs

 

According to Christopher Kim, MD Cardiologist at Utah Cardiology with privileges at Davis Hospital An estimated 10 million adults in the United States are affected by peripheral vascular disease and many of them do not even know it. Signs of P.A.D are often missed by patients and doctors, symptoms and signs depend on the disease progress. In milder cases, symptoms could be aches and pains in the legs just from walking or mild exercise. Other milder symptoms include leg heaviness and fatigue, particularly with walking. Addressing the illness early is crucial to avoiding surgery, plaque is a nasty and stick substance which blocks the arteries of the heart, with P.A.D the legs suffer the same plaque buildup which leads to the heavy leg feeling..

 

I have Peripheral artery disease

 

P.A.D is a progressive illness, the arteries build up more plaques which damages the circulation; not addressing the illness quickly is what cost so many people their health. PAD develops most commonly as a result of the hardening of the arteries, which occurs when cholesterol and scar tissue build up, forming a substance called plaque inside the arteries. This is an extremely serious condition.

 

Clogged arteries a huge problem

 

The clogged arteries cause decreased blood flow to the legs, which can result in pain when walking, and eventually gangrene and amputation. Surgeries to unclog the arteries or inserting a stent to “open up the arteries” are something necessary in patients. This is an expensive procedure. For many it is possible to reverse PAD without surgery similar to reversing heart disease. Heart disease has been shown to be reversible with a very targeted diet and this is also the case with peripheral artery disease; a specialized European diet has been reversing P.A.D without surgery.

 

 

A diet created specifically for PAD

 

There is a diet created in Europe that has been reversing PAD without surgery, the specialized diet was shown to increase the leg blood flow naturally and stop the pain and is now used in 10 countries

Peripheral artery disease walking pain

Peripheral artery disease is causing the pain when walking, it is critical to clear these arteries to save the heart

Peripheral artery disease is causing the pain when walking, it is critical to clear these arteries to save the heart

The pain when walking with peripheral artery disease is a strong indication that the heart may be effected. There are over 5 million in the United States who live with this painful condition that effects the legs, the aches and pains come from the circulation damage that occurs when the illness of PAD strikes. What should be of utmost importance is to recognize that peripheral artery disease walking pain means the arteries in the legs are dangerously restricted, what is happening to the arteries of the legs is also effecting the circulation to the heart.

 

Why the legs hurt

 

PAD is a condition were the arteries of the legs have been blocked due to dangerous and sticky plaques, these plaques narrow the blood vessels and blocks the circulation of blood. Without rich oxygen blood circulating through the limbs there is very serious damage, swelling and heavy weighted down legs are a sign of deep circulation trouble. PAD is a very serious condition that is also indicative of cardiovascular troubles, we often forget that the circulatory system is connected, if there is a blockage in the legs the heart is equally effected. Peripheral artery disease walking pain is a sign that the heart is working harder to circulate blood through out the body.

 

The number one heart attack sign

 

The number one heart attack sign is PAD, this condition is often missed by doctors, an EKG (The standard test for heart health) test does not show artery blockage in the legs, this is why so many with Pad have sudden heart attack; if you have painful walking, heavy,tired legs it is a sign of artery blockage in the legs. PAD surgery involves a very serious operation where a stent is placed in the leg, the stent attempts to get more blood flow through the leg artery and to the heart, this is not an easy procedure and often effects the heart during the operation, the cost is 5-7 thousand US dollars. Walking pain from Peripheral artery disease must be addressed quickly to protect the heart.

 

There is a diet created in Europe that has been reversing PAD without surgery, the specialized diet was shown to increase the leg blood flow naturally and stop the pain

Should I have PAD surgery? The risk of having this procedure

A very difficult operation on the arteries

A very difficult operation on the arteries

Should I have PAD surgery is question many are faced with when it come to confronting this very serious illness, there are major complications, even death from this procedure . You must be very careful before taking this route as it can lead to loss of life. There are over 4 million in the United States who suffer from peripheral artery disease, it is a growing problem, “should I have PAD surgery” is a very common question and it helps to have all the good research. We will try to make it simpler for you to decide.

 

The risk of death

 

There is a very serious risk of loss of life from peripheral artery disease surgery, a new study has found that there is a real risk of loss of life. Dr Robert S Crawford (Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA) reported the results at the Society for Vascular surgery Annual Meeting

 

“Whether a patient was functionally dependent or independent when it came to a range of routine activities of daily living—such as eating, bathing, dressing, and walking—was the only variable that, across the board, predicted mortality and all morbidity. This is a powerful tool because of its simplicity and ability to predict all major outcomes,” he said

 

Should I have PAD surgery? Researchers show that much of the outcome will depend on the health of the person with the illness. This is a very serious operation that goes deep into the arteries, anytime you enter the arteries there is a risk of heart complications, heart attack is possible during the operation. If you are in good health, non smoker, good blood pressure and in good general health the outcome may be better but there are no guarantees.

 

An operation is not the only option, before having this delicate and dangerous operation there is a natural approach that has been working. A natural diet for the reversing of peripheral artery disease has been reversing the illness in Europe. Over 10 countries have used the diet and it was found to help reverse the pain in legs, it may be tried before deciding in PAD surgery. It has worked in many people.

P.A.D. Pain in legs when walking

P.A.D. walking pain means trouble

P.A.D. walking pain means trouble

P.A.D. (Peripheral artery disease) can cause you a lot of pain in the legs (leg) when walking, the main reason for this is the fact that the legs are not getting sufficient oxygen rich blood. The lower limbs may seem heavy and constantly tired and this is a very serious warning sign. The  Pain in the legs from P.A.D. when walking must be reversed early to avoid serious and expensive surgery.

 

 

The danger of plaque in arteries

 

Plaque in the arteries cause stroke and heart failure, this starts building up early and many people starting in their 40’s can suffer heart failure from a build up of nasty plaque. As the arteries block there is an increased amount of pressure on the arteries for oxygen but the plaque has narrowed the arteries and they cannot expand, this is the beginning of very serious complications and possibly a sudden heart attack. What is happening in the leg is also happening to the heart, the lower limbs are very important to the health of the heart. A clogged leg artery is a very dangerous condition, P.A.D. Causes pain in the legs, it can make walking extremely difficult. Do not live with this condition as it may signal coming heart attack.

 

Surgery? The risk

 

The risk of surgery is great, anytime a doctor is going into major artery( as in the legs) there is  potential for a problem. The number one risk from surgery is sudden heart attack, the surgery has caused spontaneous heart attack due to limited blood flow to the heart. Surgery should be a last option and also cost over 5,000 dollars. Diet is the best way to treat peripheral artery disease but the problem is most diets cannot removes hardened artery plaques. It is best to protect against peripheral artery disease as treating it is very difficult.

 

There is some good news, a specialized diet from Germany as been reversing peripheral artery disease without surgery, the diet was shown in studies to remove plaques and reverse the pain in walking from P.A.D. The increase oxygen rich blood reversed much of peripheral artery disease  and was used in 10 countries See here P.A.D without surgery
