What does vascular pain feel like?

The most common symptom of peripheral vascular disease in the legs is pain in one or both calves, thighs, or hips. This pain is called intermittent (comes and goes) claudication. It usually is a dull, cramping pain. It may also feel like a heaviness, tightness, or tiredness in the muscles of the legs.

Moreover, what does claudication pain feel like?

Claudication is pain and/or cramping in the lower leg due to inadequate blood flow to the muscles. The pain usually causes the person to limp. The word "claudication" comes from the Latin "claudicare" meaning to limp. Claudication typically is felt while walking, and subsides with rest.
