Started with a small burning sensation once or twice a day in my lower leg - then moved up to a "pins & needles" sensation in both thighs. Now the thigh problem has lasted for three days with no signs of leaving - in fact slight soreness has developed. A side to all this is my supposed onset of carpul tunnel in my left hand that has coincideded with all of this - anyone else have anything that is similiar at all? Thanks!
