By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- Poor circulation of the legs and feet -- often a result of high blood pressure -- can lead to serious complications including open wounds that don't heal properly.
The American Podiatric Medical Association says warning signs of poor circulation in the legs and feet may include:
- Frequent cramps in your legs and feet, especially when you exercise.
- Open sores on the feet or legs that take a long time to heal or don't heal at all.
- A change in the color or temperature of your legs or feet.
- Loss of hair on your feet or legs.
