Various causes: This could be vascular or neurological in origin. You really need to see your doctor. If you're having unsteadiness in the way you walk or weakness in your legs, it will require a formal medical workup. I would recommend you see a neurologist or an orthopedic spinal specialist.

See your Doctor: There can be a variety of causes, but what first comes to mind is a low back condition which can often be aggravated with high floors, high kicking, etc. See your chiropractor to evaluate for neurological deficits due to disc bulge or herniation, as well as ruling out anything in the abdomen/pelvis.See 1 more doctor answer

What can cause bi lateral generalised leg weakness with difficulty to step up without grabbing pain in top of leg. R worse and calf mus hurts?
Get evaluated.: Please see your doctor about this. Unless you are having other symptoms you haven't mentioned, I wonder if you are having a nerve impingement in your lower spine area. Your doctor will likely perform a neurologic screening exam, and possibly recommend a ct or MRI to rule out spinal stenosis or other nerve impingement problems. You need to be seen about this. Good luck. Lgromkomd.
