Roughly a year and a half ago my legs began a numbness, tingling sensation from my calves to my toes. I'm 22 years old female and have always been an athlete. I've seen a neurologist who tested the nerves in my feet and calves. And had an MRI done on my neck and brain because of a fall I had taken that sprained my neck about the same time my legs began the problem. I've seen the commercials for Restless Leg Syndrom and have questioned the possibilities of it. The feeling of bugs crawling under my skin and the 'restless'ness that comes when even trying to sit through a movie I can relate to. However I have more problems in the morning when I wake then at night, MOST times. My feet have been so bad before that I literally fall because of the pain and pressure of stepping on them. This pain goes away after a few moments but it doesn't go away from just sitting back down. I had these symptoms for about 5 monthes then they lightened up and are back again. I also have questioned if it could be a circulatory problem for my feet are ALWAYS cold. (the nurse had to use a hair dryer to warm my feet while doing the nerve damage tests). I've been told to wait for more symptoms but my legs are driving me crazy- any help or suggestions?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
