Post Lower leg blood pressure readings

Hi Guys,
Does anyone know the proper way to check the blood pressure in the legs? I have had cramping and swelling in my right leg and someone suggested taking the blood pressure at the ankle and compare this to the arm reading. Should I lay down to do this so the leg is level with the heart? What exactly would the reading indicate?
