Dear Vicky Mahajan, hello

Before giving answer to your problem, I would like to know your age and your occupation i.e. your job profile.Whether your problem is only after dinner or anytime of the day/night?

I will advice you that please have a MRI done of your lumbo-sacral area. Also have a Doppler Ultrasound done of your legs. Also have your blood investigation done for:-

1. Complete Blood Count

2. Thyroid Profile

3. Serum Calcium

4. Serum Electrolytes

5. Serum Folic Acid and Vitamin B 12 assay
Also consult your Neurophysician for getting examined.

I hope this is helpful to you. Thanks.
