Tingling In Lower Leg

Hi, This all started about 4 months ago, woke up one morning and my left calf muscle / tendons felt tight and painful, this then progressed to a tingly feeling down my lower leg and into my toes, also, when it all 1st started my legs felt very weak when i woke up each morning, was really getting me down and then as quickly as it started it cleared up and i forgot about it.
That was until last week when i woke up and the calf muscle / tendon was tight again, tingling has started again and usually when i've finished work (I drive for about 7 hours a day 3 days a week) the backs of my knees are aching, i know this may sound ridiculous but i used to ride the clutch all the time in the car whilst driving and about 4 and a half months ago stopped doing it, so now my foot is flat on the floor instead of resting on clutch pedal, could i be irritating a nerve by what i've done or could this be something like stress, i am quite a stressful person and am hoping it is something like this that perhaps i can find a different way of dealing with

Re: Tingling In Lower Leg

theuglynorth: This could be many things. Sciatica nerve problems, diabetes, thyroid problems, restless leg syndrome, back problems, and more. You need to get an exam and MRI or xray to see what's going on there. Don't wait and let it get worse. Even seeing a chiropractor could be helpful by getting adjusted. A massage could be good for you too.
