Symptoms of Buerger’s Disease

Symptoms of TAO are generally rest pain and skin ulcerations in the feet or hands. This is often referred to as critical limb ischemia (CLI). The pain may also be felt in the leg or foot when exercising. Pain may become steadily worse and eventually become more constant, occurring at night while lying in bed. Individuals may also feel a coldness, numbness, or tingling in their feet and hands.
