A lot of people don’t take leg pain very seriously because they think that there is nothing to worry about. They believe that it is nothing serious and that it will just pass, without knowing that it may be deadly.
A ticking time-bomb in your legs
Do you have cramps in your legs when you move, and they gradually become worse as you move quicker? The pain does not go away unless you sit down and it does not appear unless you start walking? Although the pain is not extreme, don’t ignore it!
Blocked blood vessels
The crams in your legs can be a sign of inflammations, cardiovascular diseases, and weak veins and arteries that may cause accumulation of fats inside the walls of the blood vessels. The pain can be an indicator for blocked or weak arteries and veins and if you don’t do anything it may be deadly. It can cause a cardiac arrest or a stroke, as well as an aneurysm that can end up being weak and rupture and threaten your life. This condition can sometimes cause gangrene and a leg amputation.
The first symptom of this condition is pain in the leg while walking, pain in the leg muscles or sometimes even pain in the hips or butts. If you walk up or down hills or carry something heavy, the pain will grow bigger. And if you sit still, it will disappear.
If the pain only appears when you move, this means that you have blocked and weakened capillary in your legs and that your toes are not getting enough blood.
As soon as you notice this kind of pain, immediately consult your doctor because the early detection lowers the damage. Your doctor will find out what is exactly causing the pain in your leg which may save your life. Often, all you need to do in order to get rid of the pain is to do a few easy exercises and improve your circulation.
