Is leg pain a sign of vascular disease?

In our latest “Ask a Cardiologist” video, interventional cardiologist Dr. Amir Haghighat addresses the signs and symptoms of vascular disease in the legs and how a diagnosis is made.  Common symptoms include cramping when walking that goes away with rest, swelling of the ankles and feet, and discoloration, however Dr. Haghighat explains the types of leg pain and other symptoms in greater detail in our video.  Vascular ultrasound can identify blockages and reflux.  The Cardiovascular Institute in Panama City, Florida offers a nationally accredited vascular lab and minimally invasive treatments for the most common issues.
