My left leg below the knee, on the left side keeps going cold.......Even when i rub it or cover it with blankets it doesn't get warm.
Circulation reduced: Coldness in just one leg raises the question of blocked arterial circulation in that leg. Having your doctor check pulses in your feet is the place to start. If the pulses in that leg are diminished compared to the good leg, this can be evaluated by a vascular lab pressure measurement.

Crawling sensation on my left leg only, always below the knee. No nerve damage that I know of and happens throughout the day. Not only at night.
Nerve endings: That sensation probably represents irritability in the superficial nerves of the leg.
