Pain in the legs can be caused by a variety of causes. From the situation you are experiencing, pain in your right and left legs such as after a long period of standing may be due to a PAD (peripheral artery disease).
PAD / peripheral artery disease occurs due to disruption of blood flow to the leg area, most commonly due to plaque in the leg veins. PAD can occur in people who have risk factors such as smoking, old age, high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels. PAD can cause symptoms such as:
the pain in the legs feels like aches, so it feels very painful. Pain usually occurs after physical activity, or in an advanced state of pain can even occur at rest
sensory disturbances occur such as tingling, numbness, and itching
feels cold on the tips of the toes
If the condition you are experiencing is due to PAD then it requires examination and treatment from a heart disease specialist.
But apart from that the condition you are experiencing can also be caused by other causes such as:
deep vein obstruction (DVT)
therefore, to determine the exact cause of the condition you are experiencing, you can check with a heart specialist, or an internal medicine specialist so that the doctor can check your condition directly. Maybe later additional tests will be carried out such as blood tests, X-rays, CT scans, or ABI if necessary.
it's important not to smoke. Do exercise regularly. Stretch before exercise, and elevate your legs when going to sleep by propping up with a few pillows.
