Al-Marsad Newspaper: Health experts revealed 3 warning signs that your leg pain is caused by high cholesterol.
Warning signs include:
1- Mild and aching pain: The pain caused by claudication is usually mild and aching. You may also feel that your muscles are tired, or you have a spasm or muscle contraction.
2- Pain increases with activity: The pain caused by claudication is not constant, it only occurs when you move, the more effort or activity you perform, the worse the pain gets, according to what was reported in the British newspaper “express”.
3- It affects the muscles, not the joints: Another major sign is that it affects the muscles only, which means that it does not cause pain in the joints and bones.
The lack of blood flow to your legs leads to a common medical condition known as peripheral artery disease, or PAD.
