Vascular or nerves: Something about that position is compromising your circulation or the nerves to that leg so it could be something in your back or pelvis that is causing this problem. Could be scar tissue or muscle spasm or even some congenital variation in anatomy. If problematic should seek evaluation by a neurologist.
