I have been referred to a vascular consultant as I'm having trouble with painful muscles/cramps in my legs when I walk upstairs, or uphill. I have Raynauds, Sjogren's and arthritis, and to be honest, I feel a bit spooked. My appointment was supposed to be less than 2 weeks after I saw the GP, but as I'm going on holiday, it will be the week after. I'm only 54 and have never had high cholesterol - although I do have high blood pressure, and I'm trying not to panic. Any thoughts?
