Chills down the leg, goosebump behind the leg. No pinched nerve. Advice?

I keep getting chills down my left leg--not an unpleasant sensation, but rather the feeling that someone is lightly tracing their finger down your leg, and leaving an almost pleasant chilly-goosebump sensation behind. Except no one's touching me. And it won't stop. It was coming and going but has been fairly steady all day today. I don't know if I'm just noticing it more, or what. I am a workout fiend but haven't done anything new or different lately to cause an injury or pinched nerve (that I know of.) What could be causing this? Every time I go to the doctor with a vague symptom (which I rarely do, maybe 5 visits in 10 years) they don't do anything but tell me I'm probably anxious (I'm not)! I'm terrified it's something crazy like MS but I don't have any other symptoms. Please help!

Thanks for writing to us.
The symptoms that you have could be due to vitamin B12 deficiency or electrolyte imbalance if the pinched nerve has been ruled out. MS also needs to be excluded after a proper examination.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
