Thanks for your reply.
I suspect that now coming down into the leg from your spine is getting compressed or irritated at lower lumbar spinal level.
This causes tingling sensation, twitching as well as the feeling of weakness in the leg.
You need to have this examined by a neurosurgeon or an orthopaedic surgeon who can then order relevant investigations especially MRI of lumbosacral spine which shows the nerve structure and the surrounding soft tissue structure like discs and ligamentum flavum in detail.
Feel free to ask any follow-up questions.
