Vascular problems: Sounds like arterial insufficiency. See a doc for full exam including peripheral pulses, abi (ankle brachial index) and lower extremity arterial dopplers. www.chrisohmd.com.

Claudication: This could be claudication. This is when there is not enough blood flow to a muscle group during exercise so pain develops as a sign of ischemia. You should see a vascular surgeon to assess the circulation of your leg.
