Signs & Symptoms

Most people have no symptoms during the early stages of P.A.D. Often, by the time symptoms are noticed, the arteries are already significantly blocked.

Common symptoms of P.A.D. include:

  • Leg pain (cramping) that occurs while walking (intermittent claudication)
  • Leg pain (cramping) that occurs while lying down (rest pain)
  • Leg numbness or weakness
  • Cold legs or feet
  • Sores that won’t heal on toes, feet, or legs
  • A change in leg color
  • Loss of hair on the feet and legs
  • Changes in toenails—color and thickness
