One leg aches feels heavy

Customer Question

This is Dr. David

you could have a blood clot in the leg or poor circulation there or a pinched nerve in your lower back causing weakness in that leg.

I'm glad you are able to do some gentle exercises for that one leg.

you may benefit from an ultasound scan of the blood vessels of that leg to check for circulation problems.

do you have a GP doctor?

what medications are you taking?
