Hello legrosd,

Thanks for posting your query

Weakness in your legs may be either of neurological cause or arterial cause.

As you mention that dopler, arteriogrphy etc are normal means no arterial cause.

So you might be suffered from spinal stenosis.

So you have to visit an orthopaedic surgeon for clinical &neurological exam and inv as required.
