In brief: Back and leg pain?

If this difficulty is associated with back and leg pain, then you need to consider if there is a spinal problem that is causing "squeezing" of the nerves exiting the spine and going into the legs.
A herniated disc or a narrowing of the spine (stenosis) can cause this. If this is from weakness of the thigh muscles, you need to consider a primary problem of the muscles (myopathy). Check with your dr.
