Should I be Worried if my Legs Hurt at Night?

Some people write off nightly leg pain as a symptom of getting older, but if you are experiencing nightly leg pain that is interrupting your sleep that could be a symptom of Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD).

Peripheral Artery Disease is a circulatory disease that is caused by fatty deposits in your artery walls. Those deposits build up and reduce blood flow to your legs or arms. With reduced blood flow, your legs do not get the oxygen they need, and they start to hurt.

More serious cases of PAD can lead to heart attack, stroke, infection, and possible amputation. Ellichman Vein and Vascular Centers are here to help. If you are experiencing leg pain that lasts longer than a few days, you should seek the advice of a medical professional either your primary care doctor or a specialist like Dr. Jonathan Ellichman.

Below you can find more information on PAD as well as Ellichman Vein and Vascular Centers state of the art treatments that will have you feeling better in just 24 hours.
