I have researched the problem and it seems to be a blockage in the "inflow" aorta/iliac arteries that would create this "intermittent" pain. At one point, I couldn't walk from my truck in the WalMart parking lot to the hardware dept. inside the store without stopping. I was a long time smoker (40 yrs) and have eaten a terrible diet of many high glycemic foods and drinks. I quit smoking cold turkey, started a diabetic type diet, and exercise (walk) every day. I use supplements including Co Q 10, Magnesium, Fish Oil, L-Carnitine, and D-Ribose. I use systemic enzymes Lumbrokinase (bolouke)and nattokinase. I can walk 8 miles without the onset of any weakness and the weakness I feel then may be joint pain from bursitis in my hip because it seems different. I have reduced the most painful symptoms but I'm certain that the disorder is still waiting for me to "let up" om my self imposed diet restrictions and supplement program. I would enjoy hearing from anybody with similar experience in this very persistent condition.
