A typical leg pain or pain in thighs, calf and buttocks which are due to high cholesterol affect the regular life of an individual.
Leg pain can occur even by walking or doing a small physical activity. Aching, cramping, numbness in the legs and fatigue occur in frequent intervals.
With physical activities the muscles need more blood, which is affected by the narrowed blood vessels which subsequently causes the pain.
These pains go away during rest and again come back with physical activity. In medical terms this is called intermittent claudication.
