tingling in legs after walking

after walking at a normal to brisk pace, the insides of both legs tingle from my feet all the way to the groin area, but not on the outsides of my legs. I want to know what is causing this. I'm 77 and this started a few weeks ago. ## Hello, Little Mouse! How are you? I'm not a doctor, so I can't say with certainty, but that symptom is usually due to a change in circulation.

I had been curious about a "change in circu...
