In brief: Yes
You almost have to imagine the arteries of the body as a tree.
If one branch is diseased, then it is likely that other branches are also diseased. In fact, we know that peripheral vascular disease is a strong marker for coronary artery disease. If you have peripheral vascular disease, there is a greater than 90% chance that you have concomitant coronary artery disease.

In brief: Yes
The same process that is causing the peripheral vascular disease of the legs is doing it in the heart and the neck(carotids).
So if you have clogged arteries in one location you may have them elsewhere as well.
