leg pain after sitting

When I sit for few minutes and get up, my legs hurt, it's hard to walk. It subsides for a while.I've had ultra sound test for vein blockage, none. I wonder if it has to do with the fact that I eat Splenda, or that I drink wine and coffee. I go occassionally to chiropractor, but have no real problem there.

I agree with the test looking for vascular disease.

You can look for a neurological cause next, such as peripheral neuropathy, a pinched nerve, or spinal stenosis.

I would consider an MRI of the lower spine, which would evaluate for the latter two causes.  A nerve conduction study or EMG can be done to evaluate for peripheral neuropathy.  

If the symptoms continue, I would consider a neurology referral.

These options can be discussed with your personal physician.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
