In brief: Leg neuralgia

Not all pins and neesles in the legs are due to pinched nerves in the back, especially when symmetrical (both legs).
Your descriptive sounds more like a peripheral neuropathy, due to damage to or inflammation of nerves. Need to look for diabetes, low thyroid or nerve disorders. Your doctor will recommend you have nerve conduction studies (NCS) by neurology and probably a CT of the lumbar spine.
