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.

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.

P.A.D. Surgery risks

The risks from P.A.D. Surgery is very complicated and can be serious. It is best to avoid this if you can. It is important to understand what Peripheral artery disease is, it is a coronary illness that effects the arteries of the legs. This is a very serious condition that can often predict a heart attack, it is one of the most ignored warning signs. There are some who opt for surgery for P.A.D. But The risks (risk)are very high. If possible it is best to treat this illness naturally.

 

What is the risk?

The number one concern is blood vessel damage but heart attacks and other serious

complications can occur. Anytime you go into the arteries there is risk of heart attacks. The purpose of the procedure is to bypass the blocked artery and create a pathway for oxygen rich blood to flow to the leg. In its most simplest term the cells needs oxygen rich blood to transport nutrients through out the body. Those who have arteries with blockage are deprived of the rich oxygen needed by the cells of the body. This causes very serious health problems. Circulation is crucial to your good health but when the arteries clog painful stroke and heart attacks many follow. You do not want this, it is very painful and can take the life. P.A.D surgery should be an extreme last resort as the risks are also very high.

 

As the legs go so does the heart, this is a lesson that is becoming very clear to people. For years doctors missed the obvious signs of heavy and tired legs as a coronary problem. The diminished blood flow and lack of rich oxygen causes the legs to feel weighted down. This is why the legs are tired. Time is a a crucial aspect with this illness, each day could be the day the heart fails if you are living with heavy legs. P.A.D. Surgery risks are great so make it a last resort. Peripheral artery disease should be treated and reversed early to avoid serious medical complications. Heavy Legs are the sign of a coming heart attack. Please heed the warning.  Be well.
