Could: Be hip pain referred towards your knees. Do you have arthritis in the hips or any peripheral vascular disease that could be exacerbated by crossing your legs. There are a lot of questions i would like to ask before actually examining you which makes me encourage you to see your doctor if the pain is significant.
