Comment from: Carermum, 55-64 Male (Caregiver) Published: March 07

My son has Down syndrome. He started falling down, unable to stand for long, and has never walked very well. I noticed his feet and legs were icy cold, took him to the doctors and was told he had advanced peripheral vascular disease. Very sad, as he is nonverbal so can't tell how much pain he is in. I am concerned if he might be in a lot of pain.
