Heart Awareness Month is celebrated in February and it’s an excellent opportunity to raise awareness about blood circulation issues like peripheral artery disease (PAD) that can eventually cause severe heart problems like stroke and heart attack. Peripheral artery disease is the result of fat deposits on the lining of your arteries that causes them to narrow making your leg and foot muscles more likely to experience severe cramping during exertion.
Catching early signs of PAD in your feet can ward off major heart problems in the future, so be sure to see your foot doctor.
If you are exhibiting symptoms of PAD in your feet and ankles, make an appointment with your foot doctor for treatment to help avoid heart problems in the future.
