It is possible to have isolated numbness/tingling of the leg without accompanied back pain. ...Read more

Treated for lupus. Now getting intermittent tingling in my upper buttocks and sometimes feet. Throbbing legs at times. No back pain or back issues.?

Tingling: Intermittent tingling is not uncommon. If it resolves with a position change, it may be benign.

Some meds can affect this. ...Read more
