Mild Leg Paresthesia

Lumbar neuropathy: I doubt it is blood sugar related but more likely stemming from your lumbar spine.

Need to keep an eye : Often these turn out to be nothing evil. Occasionally symptoms like that are the start of problems with the nerves.

I can't do things like cross arms, legs, comb hair, hold phone, push ups w/out some form of paresthesia. How is that anxiety? Xanax doesn't stop it. I'm not panicking. I have popping in hand, shoulder blade that shoots pins and needles down arm.
Anxiety or medical?: A diagnosis of anxiety as a cause of physical symptoms can only be made when medical causes have been ruled out. Suggest you see your pcp for an evaluation of paresthesias.
