Thanks for asking query.

Well what you mother is reffering as if feeling of current is going around her legs could be due to some nerve compression . You havent mentioned clearly what were MRI findings and what type of arthritis you mother is suffering from because both the problems arthritis and pin acn be linked also or altogether can be different issues. You are advised to see an orthopaedic surgeon to rule out any kind of nerve compression . You are also advised to see a rheumatologist to assess your disease activity pertaining to arthritis .

Wish you good health
Take care.
