Periodic tingling on the thigh throughout the day, spreads to the hip area. Worrisome?

hi doc I have been having a tingling /vibrating sensation on the front of my right thigh. this used to occur mostly at night when sleeping on the bed on an on and off basis but now the problem has started affecting me during the day even when I am sitting. the tingling seems to be spreading to part of my hip area and at times to the inside of my thigh. should I be worried?
