In brief: Vascular disease
Claudication refers to pain on activity, usually pain in the leg on walking.
It is due to narrowing of arteries, usually due to atherosclerosis. It may also be referred to as peripheral vascular disease and has a high degree of association with heart attacks and strokes.

In brief: Leg Muscle Pain
Claudication, derived from a latin word that means "to limp, " is characterized by pain in the leg muscles.
It is caused by blockages in leg arteries depriving the blood supply needed for activities like walking. Resting, or stopping, relieves the pain because less oxygen is needed at rest. "intermittent" refers to the timing of pain: "it hurts upon walking but gone upon stopping, like clockwork.".
