PXE Leg Pain Study

How does exercise impact the pain of intermittent claudication (lower leg pain)?

Work out

When I work out, especially, walk or run on the traidmill I feel less pain. When I feel the pains I know I miss my workout or I forgot to take my magnesium. I take the daily dose of magnesium and I have no cramp.

Currently I do not have leg cramps but my extremities like hands and feet go numb when exercising. I find the more I exercise the longer it takes to go numb.

hi, I am very active. I am 62 years old and run 10 km at least 3 times a week and exercise at the gym 2 nights a week. I get excruituating cramps in lower calf muscles and the Botton of my feet. In fact I cannot point my toes at any time without getting a cramp. I take magnesium every day, but do it know whether it helps or not.
