These symptoms suggest the likelihood of the peripheral vascular disease.
That means you have reduced blood circulation to the affected leg which precipitates the pain on walking.
The medical term is called intermittent claudication.
Blockage to the blood vessel supplying the leg causes this symptom.
To diagnose this problem, you will need a peripheral vascular scan with doppler ultrasound, ABI index measurement.
If there is any blockage, than can be treated by angioplasty by a vascular surgeon.
So it is better to consult with a vascular surgeon.
