The other symptoms to look out for are pain and cramping in both legs when you stand on them for a long time, according to the Mayo Clinic.
The causes of the condition are numerous. Slipped discs can cause the issue. The spinal discs, which can crack, are the soft shock absorbers between the vertebrae.
Mayo Clinic explains: “Cracks in a disk’s exterior may allow some of the soft inner material to escape and press on the spinal cord or nerves.”
