Peripheral Vascular Disease
Know the symptoms!
Similar to coronary artery disease, peripheral vascular disease involves the restriction of blood flow to the vessels. By definition, peripheral vascular disease affects the vessels in the lower part of your body. When plaque builds up, clots may form and cause your arteries to harden. This narrowing of your vessels can cause a number of complications, including heart attack and stroke. Recognizing the symptoms of PVD can help you treat the problem sooner.
Symptoms of PVD include:
- Arm pain
- Leg pain
- Hair loss on your leg
- Numb muscles
- Coldness in your feet
- Weak pulses in your legs or feet
Since everyone is different, our Sugar Land and Fort Bend cardiologist at Complete Cardiology Care will review your medical history and performs a variety of tests to determine whether you have peripheral vascular disease and what the best treatment options are for you, You can reduce some of your symptoms of PVD by making lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking, exercising, and sticking to a healthy diet. For more severe cases, we may recommend medication as well. For more information about our peripheral vascular disease screenings and treatment, please contact our clinic at (281) 912-3866.
