Some people experience various non-specific pains in their legs when walking, which may occur due to minor problems, but they can be a sign of serious illness at times.

The American Heart Association said these symptoms could be a sign of peripheral artery disease caused by narrowing of blood vessels that supply blood and oxygen to the extremities of the body.

Peripheral artery disease is similar to coronary artery disease, in which plaque builds up in the arteries of the heart and leads to blockage, which can also lead to strokes.

Doctors explained that the problem in diagnosing the disease is the confusion of the patient between bone pain and age-related diseases with this condition before the correct perception of the diagnosis of the disease, and this is also something that doctors fall into.

Peripheral artery disease may not be as severe as a blood clot, but if left untreated or undetected, it can affect the quality of daily life, leading to incurable wounds or amputations in severe cases.

Risk factors for peripheral artery disease are similar to heart disease, such as aging, physical inactivity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and an increased risk of infection in smokers than others.
