both legs
Expert:  Dr. Josh replied 8 years ago.

Tingling sensation, biting sensations on lower legs can be due to Peripheral Neuropathy .Peripheral neuropathy is a term used to describe disorders of your peripheral nervous system .

When damaged, your nerves can't communicate properly, and that miscommunication causes symptoms such as these occur ..

Peripheral neuropathy often affects people with diabetes and autoimmune diseases such as lupus. Certain vitamin deficiencies, some medications and alcoholism can also damage peripheral nerves.
