Claudification leg pain - what does it feel like?
I just started a walking routine in February. The more I try to do the more my legs hurt. In the beginning I could do 10 minutes on low spead treadmill before becoming tired or out of breath. I would then do other excercise bike or weights and then return to treadmill. I went from 3 days a week to 4 than 5. Now, After 4-5 minutes of walking my calf muscles will tighten and hurt - at least one leg, sometimes both, so I have to stop. It feels like a charlie horse is coming on. I have been adding lots of leg, shin and calf stretches to my cooldown routines increasing since I started. But after 3 weeks it is not going away. I do wear 2" heels at work daily. Could this be claudification leg pain?
