This article resonates strongly with me - I have been experiencing very similar out of control, shuffling symptoms in one leg only since a marathon last year. I call it "jelly leg" !
The only difference is that I get no pain whatsoever
I have done the slump test and certainly feel a 'pull' on my nerve but no pain.
Is it likely to be nerve compression? Is it ever seen without pain?
I have previously had a problem with a painful right calf and then pins and needles - using a foam roller before running has helped this!
