I am 20 years old. For about 1 1/2 years I have experienced a weird tingling sensation in my calf (nothing at all below the ankle or above the calf and it happens to both legs, but only one at a time).It seems to be brought on by sitting or being in any awkward position like sitting on my knees. The sensation starts out feeling sort of like when your foot falls asleep, followed by a numb feeling where I can't move my leg at all; its like dead weight and if i try to walk on it I just fall over. About 5-10 seconds after the "numb" feeling begins my calf starts to become extremely painful, almost like a burning/pokey knives feeling. From start to finish the symptoms last about 20 secs-1 1/2 minutes. Sometimes this happens to me 3-4+ times a day and sometimes I can go 2 or 3 days with out experiencing anything. These symptoms happen randomly throughout the day and don't seem to be connected with any specific time of day.
My feet, and calves especially, are both very achy most of the day. My calves get numb very easily and when they get numb, I am much more likely to get one of the painful episodes.
I have been to a nuerologist and spinal doctor and all tests have come back normal.
