Hi sandy it is impossible for me to say, people commonly develop neurological problems in their lower extremities, meaning they lose feeling and muscle function this often happens in people with diabetes, but it would be unusual for this to come and go. If you haven't seen a doctor you should see one. How is your back sometimes the nerves exiting the spine can be compressed this interferes with the nerves.
