I am having symptoms that I think might be PVD.  I'm very anxious about this.  confused What can I expect when I go to the doctor?  Should I tell the doc I think I know what I have or just relay the symptoms to him? I am worried because I have had these symptoms for a very long time but only just recently have had them bad enough to make the bell go off in my head that this could be serious! 
I had numbness in my legs but not necessarily during exercise.  I walk a mile every day and have done so for the past six months.
I'm new to this board so I hope these are appropriate questions.

Hi nutmeg!  And welcome to Healing Well.  I'm sorry but I don't know a thing about this condition.  Hopefully someone else her may be familiar with it and give you some suggestions.  The board is kinda quiet here right now, probably a lot because everyone is busy with the Holidays.  Have you done a google search to find out more about this condition?  Sometimes that helps.  Good luck at the doctor.  Hugs, Pat
