Brief Answer:
Could be due to muscle spasm or nerve entrapment.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I would need to ask you how long it has been occurring and whether there are specific triggers. I would insist you to share any other relevant details. As such, muscle spasm is a likely cause and hot compress should provide relief. Nerve entrapment is another possible cause. In either case visiting a physical therapist should help. He would be able to demonstrate the right exercises.

Feel free to write back.

It could be a muscle spasm. It also begins stinging when I lay down sideways and put my overweight body on it. It also happens when I sit and stretch my legs straight forward like on a lounge chair. I do not have any trouble with it when I stand or walk.
