The pain usually occurs while you are walking or climbing stairs and stops when you rest. This is because the muscles\' demand for blood increases during walking. The narrowed or blocked arteries cannot supply more blood, so the muscles are deprived of oxygen and other nutrients.
This pain is called intermittent claudication.
This disease is named as buerger's disease this is very common in chronic smokers & tobacco chewers.
It is usually a dull pain. It may also feel like a heaviness, tightness, or tiredness in the muscles of the legs.
Cramps in the legs have several causes, but cramps that start with exercise and stop with rest most likely are due to intermittent claudication. When the blood vessels in the legs are completely blocked, leg pain at night is very typical, and the individual almost always hangs his or her feet down to ease the pain. Hanging the legs down allows for blood to passively flow into the distal part of the legs.
pain is more during winters and in cloudy weather, this pain is mild in summers and when limb is warm.
pain is very common in legs but can also be present in the upper limb, usally skin is dark in colour and dry.
