About the symptom

Limb pain and discomfort can be constant or intermittent. Movement may cause pain, or it may not be related to movement. Depending on where the limb pain comes from, other symptoms like warmth, redness, numbness, or tingling may also be present.

    Arteriosclerosis obliterans or peripheral artery disease is a condition where arteries become clogged from fatty deposits.
