Tired and heavy legs can be a sign of a

coming heart attack. This is one of the most silent warning signs

that are often missed. Heart disease and Diabetes is on the rise in

the United Kingdom and in much of the West. The United States is

experiencing a similar increase in coronary artery disease. Tired

legs are a sign of serious heart troubles and this can also be

related to other health complications.

What the leg weight means

The leg is a major transporter of blood

through out your body, more than 2/3 of the body are your lower

limbs, when these limbs become heavy and tiresome it is a sign that

the heart is in trouble. Health researchers have shown that the

heaviness in the lower limbs are indications of blocked arteries in

the leg, this can proceed a heart attack or stroke. This is a warning

to those who live with this each day. The standard way of checking

the heart is with an EKG test (electrocardiogram test)

This is a standard test to check the

strength of the heart. The problem with this test is that it does not

show the blocked arteries in the leg. Tired legs are a sign of

narrowed arteries and clots. The leg circulation is critical to the

health of your heart.

If you have trouble lifting the weight

of your legs up staircase or getting out of bed it indicates a

problem. It is not normal to have heaviness feeling in the legs, it

is a warning of artery blockage, many doctors do not check this and

it results in thousands of heart attacks each year. It is critical to

address the problem of weighty legs. High blood sugar has been

causing increasing numbers of people to carry around heaviness in the

leg. At all ages your legs should feel light, even in senior

citizens. The number one heart attack sign is not chest pain but

heavy lower limbs. Chest pains are usually apparent after living with

tired legs for a long time. If you have heaviness in the lower limbs

it may be a sudden coming heart failure please heed the message.
