Peripheral Arterial Disease

According to John Hopkins's Health magazine (Summer 2012), leg cramping, weakness, and discomfort may be symptoms of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) caused by clogged or blocked arteries. This disease may be linked to diabetes or advanced age.
Please check with your physician if you have any unusual leg symptoms. A specialist can perform an ultrasound, MRA, or other tests to check your arteries. Treatment is also available including interventional radiology or vascular bypass surgery. Hopkinsmedicine.org/usa/summer 2012.

PAD may interfere with the ability to sit, stand, or walk for any length of time or interfere with the ability to work. For more information, contact the law offices of Sheryl Gandel Mazur.
