See your doctor: It is difficult to localize the lesion without both understanding the history of the discomfort, nor an examination which can help determine any other associated signs/symptoms. Because of where the muscles and the nerves traverse along the leg, it could be a variety of things. Please consult with your doctor for further evaluation.
