In brief: Many possibilities

The most common causes are poor blood flow to the limb and a nerve problem (either at the nerve root or along the course as it passes down the leg).
The distribution of the pain, as well as the factors that make it better or worse, can help to narrow down the possibilities and guide proper treatment.
