The lower back part of my right thigh just above the knee and/or just below the knee feels like the circulation has been cut off. It doesn't feel like a tingling or buring sensation, but rather it feels more like it has been bound too tight. I have serious lower back pain (the MRIs states that it is a minor bulging disc), and I have had it for approximatly 15 years. I have been going to pain management for the past 2 years for nerve blocks, with little to no relief. I also suffer from depression and also have hashimoto's disease. Is the leg pain associated with my back pain, hahsimoto's, from depression (this seems to be the scapegoat for everything), or is it something new. The discomfort comes more when I sit and sometimes is releived when lying down. In addition, I am starting having problems with my hands going to sleep at night and it often wakes me up. I am starting to feel like I am a hypocondriac. Does anyone have the same thing?
