Leg Pain

What Causes Leg Pain?

Leg pain related to vascular issues often stems from poor circulation, specifically conditions such as peripheral artery disease (PAD) or deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

  • Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD): In PAD, narrowed arteries restrict blood flow to the legs, causing symptoms such as cramping, fatigue, or pain during physical activity (claudication). This pain typically subsides with the rest but returns upon exertion.
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT): DVT occurs when a blood clot forms in a deep vein, commonly in the legs. This can lead to pain, swelling, warmth, and redness in the affected area. If  a clot breaks loose and travels to the lungs (pulmonary embolism), it can become life-threatening.
  • Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI): CVI arises from damaged valves in the veins, impairing blood flow back to the heart. Symptoms include leg pain, swelling, heaviness, and cramping, particularly after prolonged standing or sitting.
  • Varicose Veins: While often more of a cosmetic concern, varicose veins can cause discomfort and pain, especially after long periods of standing or sitting. They result from weakened vein walls and malfunctioning valves, leading to poor circulation and pooling of blood in the legs.

In all of these cases, proper diagnosis and treatment by a medical professional are crucial to alleviate symptoms and prevent complications.
