Dear Jacustomer,

I am sorry to know about your medical history and present symptoms,

Based on what you mentioned,I will advise that you ask your physician to do complete metabolic panel as imbalance of electrolytes like serum potassium,calcium may present with similar transient left leg pain.I am also mentioning this based on your past medical history too.
Also ask the physician to do a physical exam,if required mri to rule out any nerve impingement as that too may cause similar symptoms as you described.

Thanks
