Brief Answer:
Can be due to many causes.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.

The strange sensation in the right leg with no visible rash can be due to a nerve root irritation or Vitamin B12 deficiency. Other causes include electrolyte imbalance, diabetes, thyroid imbalance, etc. It is best to consult your physician for proper investigations and start with necessary supplements.
I hope this answers your query.

In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
