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.

Clogged Leg Arteries can cause constant heavy legs

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.

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

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

Legs hurt from P.A.D. What to do about it

 

Never wait a single day with P.A.D.

Never wait a single day with P.A.D.

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

Heart disease drug to treat P.A.D? maybe not

 

 

Researchers in Australia may recommend using a heart disease medication to treat P.A.D but one must wonder if is this really a good idea? PAD is increasing worldwide, periph

P.A.D is extremely serious

P.A.D is extremely serious

eral artery disease is a very serious condition that effects the heart, it is often the number one warning sign of a coming heart attack. The legs are usually heavy and there is much trouble walking. Heart disease pills do not treat P.A.D directly.

 

What the researchers say about Ramipril

 

Ramipril is a heart and high blood pressure medication, it is not a drug for peripheral artery disease. Ramipril is also used mainly for coronary problems. When researchers in Australia tested this drug on people with peripheral artery disease they found that those who had difficulty walking did experience a slight improvement in pain. Walking was slightly less painful but this heart disease drug is not treating your peripheral artery disease problem directly. We are not recommending to you that you do no take Ramipril, please consult your doctor before taking any drugs. We are making it clear that this is a heart disease and high blood pressure medication and was not created to treat P.A.D

 

The most important thing to remember about peripheral artery disease is that it is a serious warning of coming heart failure of coronary attack. As the legs go so does much of the body, tired or heavy legs is not normal and can mean big trouble. They are a sign of serious damage to the arteries supporting your heart function. We have shown in Europe that much of P.A.D pain can be reversed naturally while saving the heart drug free. Researchers in Europe have shown the only natural diet created for the reversal of peripheral artery disease in the world and used in over 10 countries
