Why is my knee falling asleep? I had rhumatic fever

My knees mainly my right will fall asleep. It happens at any time, standing, sitting. My leg nor feet fall asleep at the same time. I had rhumatic fever when I was younger and I am being treated for high chlosterol. My legs have been achy but it comes and goes. I am a white female. 37 years old. Any suggestions why this would be happening Thank you A
