If upper leg muscles are deconditioned, are they constantly weak or is there intermittent weakness when using them?

Weak and fatigable

Weakness
Deconditioning typically appears as a loss of total strength (overt weakness) superimposed upon loss of stamina (rapid fatigue and exercise intolerance), both of which will slowly recover with time and a regimented therapy program. A rapid fluctuation in strength may be a sign of a superimposed neuromuscular problem.

What is the best treatment for legs weakness?

Depends upon cause

Calf
Is you weakness a stamina issue due to de-conditioning? Or perhaps you have issues with muscle and/or nerve, or do you legs get weaker when walking or exercising? Under those circumstances, you need to see your doctor and uncover causation so all returns to normal.

What is the treatment for a herniated disc caused by a car accident that is causing leg burning numbness and leg weakness for almost 8 weeks ?

Surgery

Accidents
It is difficult to give specific advice without an exam and access to the MRIs and other essential data. My advice is to see a spine surgery or neurosurgeon for an opinion if conservative therapy has not helped.

What is the treatment for persistent numbness and weakness in lower leg and foot 1 mo. after a popliteal nerve block to remove 3 fusion screws?

See neurologist

Nerve damage following a peripheral nerve block is a possible complication but should be uncommon in an experienced anesthesiologist's hands. A neurologist will probably consider a nerve conduction study to ascertain the cause of your problem and treatment options/prognosis.
