In brief: Poor perfusion
Ischemia is caused by low or inadequate blood flow and oxygen delivery to a tissue: heart attack stroke amputation renal failure are sequellae of ischemia but mild is mild reversible means it was treated and improved.

In brief: Poor blood flow
When arteries are narrowed, not enough oxygen gets to the tissue.
This is worse when exercising a muscle ( or heart muscle), becuause its oxygen requirement are increased. At rest it might not be as much of an issue , because oxygen requirements are less.
