My husband has the same thing. It goes up his legs, just below his knees. He has diabetes and PAD. Have you been tested for PAD? His podiatrist has given him a cream Lac-Hydrin 12% (ammonium lactate). It has done wonders for him. Maybe you should see a podiatrist. He also has neuropathy in his feet. I hope this might be of some help.

Hi dnlemerson,

Welcome to the WebMD Community!

I cannot tell you how many times I see members posting to our communities that have been shuffled from one health professional to another with no answers. It is mind-boggling.

My first suggestion is get second opinions on both the vascular and neurological fronts. Sometimes the right doctor makes all the difference in getting a diagnosis.

Here also is some information that may be helpful:

I hope you get some answers soon.
