When To Seek Help

It’s important that you’re able to recognize the symptoms of PVD so that you know when to seek medical attention. Although peripheral vascular disease is not a medical emergency, you’ll need to take steps to reverse it in order to reduce your chance of experiencing a stroke or heart attack. The following are symptoms of PVD:

  • Fainting/lightheadedness
  • Numbness in the legs, arms, or face
  • Difficulty seeing in one or both eyes
  • Sudden headaches or dizziness

If you’re experiencing one or more of these symptoms, don’t wait. Schedule an appointment with Stockton Cardiology and we’ll have you tested for PVD. Our team of cardiologists offer Covidien varicose vein ablation treatment in the office setting. Please ask your cardiologist for more information. Stockton Cardiology provides cardiology services at our offices in Stockton, Tracy, Manteca, and San Andreas.
