Brief Answer:
Neurological examination/Routine blood work

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for being on healthcaremagic.com.
I am Dr.Ajay Panwar,a neurologist,here to answer your query.

The symptoms of heaviness in legs are non-specific symptoms and can be due to several causes.

I suggest that a neurological examination and a routine blood work including hemogram, serum electrolytes, calcium, blood sugar and Thyroid function tests should be done.

Segmental pressure test can be done, if indicated after a physical examination.

Hope that helps.If you have further questions, I shall be glad to have you in follow-up.

Regards
Dr.Ajay Panwar,
MD,DM(Neurology)
