Hello doctor,

I am a 20-year-old male. I currently have a tingling sensation in my left leg, on the right side of my calf. I have recently had a long journey (approximately 10 hours, with stops every three hours) the sensation has lasted for about a week. I am not on any medication or have any health conditions. Please help.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

This may be due to your long journey where all your joints will be flexed for quite a long time inspire of the rest you had in between. If it is in a bike, your lower spine has also been flexed, which will cause a small inconvenience to the nerves which pass through the foramen of the spine. It simply may due to a vitamin deficiency, or be due to disc problem. Rule out any disc problem, see an orthopedic surgeon, do a spinal MRI. If everything is fine, do some exercises for the leg and the spine and take some B complex.
