I have sudden pain in my legs for a few seconds?

Question: I have sudden pain in my legs for a few seconds. It can be sometimes the left or right leg. Nothing in particular triggers it and it doesn’t last more than 10 seconds. What can it be?

Answer: Based on the info you have provided, this may result from some underlying conditions like leg cramps, muscle, tendon, or ligament damage due to any type of injuries, sciatica or lumbar radiculopathy due to nerve injury, peripheral artery disease due to atherosclerosis, deep vein thrombosis, diabetic neuropathy, etc. You will need to consult – Further investigation is required. In the meantime, try stretching exercises as well as cold compress.
