What is Claudication?


Claudication is pain caused by too little blood flow. It can occur after walking for a period, or during exercise.

Sometimes called intermittent claudication, this condition generally affects the blood vessels in the legs; but claudication can affect the arms, too.

At first, you’ll probably notice the pain only when you’re exercising, but as claudication worsens, the pain may affect you even when you’re at rest.
