Odd sensations in my legs

For a long time I've suffered with odd sensations in my legs but mainly at night. However more revently I've been getting tingling/crawling sensations on and off all day and at night my legs from the knee down are very painful also. Any ideas?

The answer

This may be a circulation issue where a restricted amount of blood is getting to the lower legs or it may be related to the nervous system. To be certain of the cause you would need to see your GP for diagnosis and be referred to a vascular surgeon if needed or neurologist to assess nerve conduction in your legs.
