I have pain in both legs, around the calves, i can only walk a few feet 20-30ft. I had a stroke a few years ago
There : There is something called "intermittent claudication, " which is where you walk for a period of time or distance and are forced to stop and rest because of pain in the legs (usually the calves). You stop and rest and stand there, and after a minute or so, you're able to start walking again, only to find you need to stop and rest again soon, and so on. This is a symptom of poor circulation, more specifically, peripheral arterial disease (pad). The muscles in your legs are being forced to work without getting enough oxygen (carried through your blood stream) to work well. In the absence of sufficient oxygen, they function anyway, but since the metabolism is now different in the absence of oxygen, they produce a substance called lactic acid, which builds up in the muscle and causes pain. If you stop and rest the muscles, the Lactic Acid dissipates, the pain subsides, and you can walk again.... Only to have the pain return when the Lactic Acid builds up again. If this is what's happening with you, you need to see a vascular surgeon asap. You may have a blockage that's preventing blood from flowing to your legs, or the arteries may have fat deposits and are narrowed (same mechanism in many strokes). Listen to the pain.
