In brief: Symptoms different

Pad is atherosclerotic narrowing of arteries.
As it worsens, blood flow decreases leading to symptoms of claudication (pain - walking or activity ) which is relieved by stopping. Symptoms change to pain at night awaking you from sleep & relieved by getting your feet down. Finally they progress to constant pain at rest with or without non healing sores/ulcers. Diagnosed accurately by doppler.
