In brief: Claudication

Claudication - meaning leg, arm or organ pain during walking, stress or other condition that increase oxygen demand.
That is, there is a mismatch between oxygen supply and oxygen demand. (ischemia means low blood flow, vascular means vessel.).

In brief: Depends...

...On what is ischemic.
If it is bowel, it could be pain or perforation. In a leg, it could be wounds, claudication , or nothing. In the head, it could be strokes or tias.
