If you have leg claudication, will you eventually have something similar in your arms?

In brief: Typically not

Claudication most commonly affects the legs.
Occlusive disease can develop in the arms but symptoms are much less common. If exertional pain is noted in the arms, evaluation by a vascular surgeon may be warranted.

In brief: Not likely

Blockages of arteries to the arms are possible but much less likely to occur than blockages in the legs.
In addition, the blockages in the arms are a lot less likely to cause symptoms.
