Leg Cramps

The inadequate blood flow to the legs may also cause a person to experience cramping, another claudication symptom. Leg cramps may develop without warning, presenting as a sudden pain in the legs due to the tightening of the muscles.

The pain may be severe, and it may last from a few seconds to minutes.2‘Muscle Cramps & Spasms.’ Healthy Aging: Muscle Cramps & Spasms | MUSC Health | Charleston SC, muschealth.org/medical-services/geriatrics-and-aging/healthy-aging/cramps-and-spasms Individuals may gain relief from leg cramps by stretching and massaging the leg muscles.
