PVD: Intermittent claudication is a term used in peripheral vascular disease to describe reproducible lower extremity muscular pain induced by exercise, usually after a specific distance of walking, and relieved by rest. Studies have shown that most people with this do not tell their doctors as they assume it is a normal consequence of aging. It is not, however.
