Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

These are technical terms in radiology -
It indicates a pathology at that site - Vascular infarction, Multiple sclerosis and so on / needs to be correlated with the clinical picture...

Discomfort in legs could also be vascular / or drug induced - like statin, electrolyte imbalance and so on.
It needs examination and/or investigation by the Internist.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
