Several causes: Nerve impingement may be causing these, anywhere from where the nerve exits the spine to somewhere along your leg. Watch your posture and how you sit. See a rehab doctor (physiatrist). Diabetes and certain deficiencies in vitamins and minerals may be other contributors. See a functional medicine doctor (institute for functional medicine) or naturopath to investigate those.
