Hello. I’m a 52 year old female. About 2 months ago I developed an odd deep ticklish type sensation in my left leg, followed by intermittent muscle twitching in the calf and foot of that leg. I’m visited a neurologist about a month into it and they did the standard strength tests which were normal and said my reflexes were brisk but normal. The neurologist was a bit stumped and said maybe restless legs but not really. Then I went to an orthopedic doctor thinking maybe it was a pinched nerve but he said no symptoms were not consistent with a pinched nerve. Soon feel like no one really knows what this is. Sometimes I also feel the sensation in my arms but the twitching has stayed confined to my left lower leg. Is one normal neuro exam enough to rule out a neuromuscular disorder and does this sensation sound familiar to anyone?
