Brief Answer:
possible neuropathy

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome to HCM.

Your symptoms may just be temporary signs of vasoconstriction or nerve irritation but if this persist or worsen then it may indicate certain disordres such as neuropathy or circulation issue.
Neuropathy may be caused by diabetes so you should first check your blood sugar. Other causes include alcohol abuse, or spinal cord compression or hypovitaminosis (lack of vitamin D,calcium or magnesium).

You should take calcium supplements and check blood sugar. If there is no improvement, you need to do Doppler ultrasound of the leg or CT angiography to rule out such obstructive changes.
