Calf Pain When you Walk-Peripheral Arterial Disease

Often, people feel pain in their calves after they walk a few blocks. This pain gets better after rest. This is typically a sign of peripheral vascular disease or poor circulation. Smokers, diabetics, people with high cholesterol or kidney disease may have poor circulation at a higher than the general population. It is important to get an examination with a podiatrist to see if you have this condition. Please call 708-763-0580 for your appointment.
