If you notice your legs are sore when you lay down at night, but feel better when you hang them over the edge of bed, if your feet ache, burn or feel cold, especially at night, or if notice when you take a short walk you need to stop, rest a moment and then feel better, you may have peripheral arterial disease (PAD).

PAD is a common condition that if recognized and treated early can improve the quality of your life and reduce your risk of heart attack or stroke.
