In brief: Two types

Arteries (vessels that flow away from heart to body) and veins (vessels that flow from body to heart) have different symptoms.
In artery disease - lack of blood flow to muscles produces loss of ability to use muscles and if acute may produce pain, pallor and loss of pulse. Venous disease presents as varicose veins and progressive swelling of affected area - usually legs. Heart vessels-chest pain.

depending on the vascular system predominantly involved, symptoms may be cardiac, neurologic, or those affecting renal function
