I have been experiencing a sensation like bubbles popping in

This answer was rated:

I have been experiencing a sensation like bubbles popping in my legs which started a couple of months and is getting more often.
where in your legs is this happening? Any other medical problems or medications?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

It is happening below my knees line, in the back of legs. Yesterday I feel in my feet as weel.

The only medicine that I take is Zoloft.

Does it seem to happen in the joints?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

No, the feeling is just in the muscles.

Does this happen more when you exercise? Dehydrated? overheated?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Actually I was trying to tie it up with the conditions you asked, and found no correlation.

I do not workout and am always hydrated.

It is like a twitching?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

We can say that, but actually feels like bubbles popping inside my legs and foot plant

Well, it sounds like you have fasciculations- which are local involuntary muscle twitching. They can feel like bubbles popping, etc.
These can be caused by MANY different things:
Diet deficiency
Drug overdose (caffeine)
Drug side effect (such as from diuretics, corticosteroids, or estrogens)
Benign twitches- usually affects eyelid, calf and thumb- triggered by stress or anxiety
Heat exhaustion
Electrolyte abnormalities (calcium and potassium)
Nervous system conditions that can cause muscle twitching:
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS - Lou Gehrig's disease)
Damage to the nerve that leads to a muscle
Muscular dystrophy
Spinal muscular atrophy
Weak muscles (myopathy)
Treatment depends on the cause
As mentioned before, usually they are benign and will resolve with rest, vitamins and hydration
Stress reduction is really important too
But if they get worse, more broad or associated with weakness or numbness, you need to see your physician.
