What could be causing this?

probably about a year ago i had constant tingling in my leg. Went to the dr. At first she said it was a vitamin d deficiency. After a few months of it not going away i went back. My reflexes in that leg were very weak. She ordered an mri to check for MS but the mri showed nothing. The numbness went away for a while. Then it came back a couple months ago. She said i should really be on a vitamin d supplement. So i started it a few months back, but i still have the tingling and then today i started getting sharp shooting pains in that leg as well. HELP!!

It can cause the leg pain with out the back pain.

Is this a numbness on the outside of your thigh, just above your knee, in a patch about 4x6?  If it is then it is a nerve that is twisted with a muscle, like a rubber band.  It happens when you carry weight on your hips.  Like a scuba weight belt, tool belt etc.

I have this and it was diagnosed finally by a neurologist.
