Hello,

Such type of sensations are due to nerve compression of your leg. If this does happened for a movement then you should not worry. But if these occurrence are frequent and if there any remaining disability then you should consult to your doctor.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
