In brief: 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.

Agree. May want to be referred to a surgeon who specializes in vascular surgery for an expert opinion if this is happening to you
