Is your leg pain caused by PAD?
Answer these questions to find out:

1. Are your legs often tired or do they feel tight or ache when you walk or exercise?

2. If “yes”, do your legs feel better when you stop the activity?

If you answered “yes” to both of the above questions, you should talk to your doctor to see if you need further tests to see if you have disease in your legs. You can also make an appointment at the Vascular Clinic by calling 717-544-6565.
