What you should do is consult a doctor to evaluate : your leg blood flow , perform a nerve conduction test , to measure your glucose and cholesterol blood levels , a doppler ultrasound to visualize the leg blood vessels ( with these tests , your doctor will be able to see if there is any obstruction or blockage ) and some metabolic tests ( including your glucose blood levels, thyroid hormones and vitamin B12 levels ) .
