A pain in the leg

Leg pain can be a wake up call 
Leg pain is most commonly caused by blockages in your blood vessels. Known as arteriosclerosis, it does not only occur in your heart but it can happen anywhere in your body, when it is known as PAD or peripheral arterial disease.
Statistically about 25% of people who experience PAD in their legs will die in 5 years from a heart attack or or related heart problems. Even more alarming, 50% of people who whose leg pains prevent them from walking even short distances may die within 5 years.

Early diagnosis, treatment and lifestyle changes can prevent this. If you are having any discomfort or pain in your legs, consult your doctor.
