Claudication

Claudication

Claudication is a condition where pain may shoot down your legs with cramp-like pain in your thigh or calf after certain periods of activities. It may be associated with tingling or “funny-feeling” in your legs after walking certain distance. This leg pain may be relieved merely by bending forward or you may have to sit and take rest before you can continue further with your walking.The severity of the compression over the nerve may be given by the distance that you can travel without any symptoms of claudication pain, with the distance getting shortened gradually with worsening compression of the nerves.
