legs extremely weak, slight twitching what doctor do I see?

Hi, I am an 18 year old male and a little worried. Today I woke up and my legs felt extremely weak, slight twitching is occurring and I'm having a little trouble walking (I can walk OK, but my legs feel like they will give at any moment). I work out with weights regularly and I know for a fact this is not soreness due to weight training because this just feels like weakness. Nothing is wrong with upper body, just legs. Thanks in advance, please tell me what I should do.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These symptoms seemed to be benign.
I would suggest you to have serum vitamin B12
and serum calcium to sort out the problem.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
