What causes pin prick sensation in legs?

I occasionally get a random pin prick sensation in legs, usually my calves but sometimes the back of my thigh as well. It only lasts a second and the. I itch or rub the area and it goes away. There is no mark or anyhing after it happens. What can be causing this?
