What causes tingling and numbness in leg?

My 21 yr old son, who works outside the home, reports that today his right leg had symptoms. First, his angle was tingling and numb, then his foot. That went away, then 30 min later the same symptoms in his hamstring (same leg). That stopped, then awhile later his thigh in the front got the same symptoms. All of this was on the same leg.
He's had chickenpox, but never had shingles (yet). No rash at this time. He also has Asperger's Syndrome and takes Vyvanse and Namenda XR to help with ADD and the Aspergers. Also takes supplements. He is "double-jointed", 6'2" and about 150 lbs (tall and thin).
Suggestions?
