Customer Question
My lower legs feel...

My lower legs feel like there are insects crawling on them. Does it mean anything?

No swelling, nothing seems to hurt at the time, but I always look down imagining to see insects

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
