Claudication is a medical term meaning the pain that is caused from a decrease in the blood circulating to the area often during exercise. As the process progresses, the pain can even occur at rest. Additional symptoms may be a cramping, tightness, or burning feeling. This will usually occur in the thighs, legs, feet or toes. There are, however, other possibilities which can cause these same symptoms.
If you are having these symptoms, call Dr. Danciger at (760) 568-0108 for an appointment to see if non-invasive vascular testing is needed for you in order to determine proper treatment. The office is located in Palm Desert, California.
