In brief: Back vs leg

"tingling and numbness" usually means a nerve is not functioning properly.
Depending on what part of the leg is affected, it's possible that the nerve irritation is at the level of the back (nerve root) or a peripheral problem (nerve affected at the level of the leg.

In brief: Nerve Compression

Tingling and numbness can occur from many issues including an impingment or compression of a nerve or specific area like a muscle.
It can also be from a direct injury to a nerve itself. Neuroma is a common problem in the foot that can cause tingling and numbness. Need to evaluate more specifically where the areas in question are. Recommend seeing a podiatrist for evaluation.
