Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Yes, you should see a doctor
The description may mean –
-     Ischemia / intermittent claudication from deficient blood supply
-     Entrapment neuropathy / muscle or nerve compression from fascia
You may need a few investigations…

Take care     
Wishing all well
God bless
Good luck
