These symptoms indicate a vein problem and a heart-related condition, including peripheral vein disease and peripheral artery disease. The conditions result from the constricted blood vessels due to cholesterol buildup. It decreases the blood flow, causing cramping and muscle weakness.
Leg pain, swelling, and cramps may also show a severe heart problem that occurs due to inefficient pumping of blood—as a result, causing fluid buildup in the legs.
