Neighborhood Health Watch: Symptoms of peripheral arterial disease

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Peripheral arterial disease is a common circulatory problem in which narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to your limbs.

Extremities, such as legs, don’t receive enough blood flow to keep up with demand.

This can cause symptoms like leg pain when walking.

The disease affects 200 million people in the world, especially aging Baby Boomers.
