In brief: Artery Disease Legs

Peripheral artery disease, or "pad" is a blood vessel condition that is usually the result of progressive plaque build-up within the walls of arteries than leads to blockage of blood flow.
It can cause leg pain when walking, usually in the calves, pain at rest in the foot or leg, leg numbness or tinlging, coldness or discoloration of the skin, foot or leg ulcers, gangrene, poor healing of wounds.

In brief: Leg pain

Or claudication. Legs hurt or cramp due to poor flow when walking.
Rest improves the symptoms. Loss of hair on the lower legs. Ulcers or sores of feet or toes. Skin infections of lower legs. Easy to be checked with abi test. This compares blood pressures of arms to legs and can predict severity of pad.
