Your symptoms may be indicative of a condition called as
"Peripheral Neuropathy". This condition results due to irritation or injury to the peripheral nerves in the limbs. You may need EMG/Nerve conduction study (a nerve & muscle test).
There are few medical conditions, causing neuropathy, these are-

Vitamin deficiencies

Chronic infections

To make a diagnose you need to undergo few tests. These are-
Blood sugar test, X-ray of spine, Complete blood count, Serum Uric acid test. After the evaluation, medications like Lyrica, Neurontin will be prescribed.You can use a cold pack to relax leg and foot muscles, After this use a warm towel or heating pad later if you have pain or tenderness, or you can take a hot bath.

Please consult your doctor for clinical checkup and get appropriate management.
