The most common cause of your symptoms are : Atherosclerosis that blocks blood flow in the arteries,),Blood clot (deep vein thrombosis),varicose veins,neuropathies. Blood clots can form is the deep veins of the leg, causing a blockage in circulation. You need tests like ultrasound,Arteriogram,CT scan, arterial-brachial index,like electromyography and nerve conduction studies,certain blood tests,electro physiological studies.So I advice you to make an appointment with your doctor for tests to know the exact cause & treat accordingly.
