In brief: Need a neurologist

Your symptoms are concerning for some type of nerve issue.
The most likely source would come from your spine. The next cause could be a pinched nerve in the leg itself or a tumor involving the nerve. Lastly a neurological disorder like ms could cause such symptoms rarely. Regardless, a neurologist can assess your exam and order appropriate imaging, electrical tests or blood tests for diagnosis.
