The symptom "intermittent limping" has become so associated with intermittent claudication that clinically, to many, the terms have become almost synonymous. The term "intermittent limping" describes a sequence of events in which the patient finds repeatedly that, after walking a few blocks, he must come to a complete halt because of a cramp-like pain or sense of exhaustion in one or both legs. The first physician consulted usually refers the patient complaining chiefly of this symptom to a colleague particularly interested in peripheral vascular diseases. However, the complaint is frequently due to non-vascular causes.
