In brief: Well,....

Generally, the feeling you are describing can be caused by circulation issues and or neurological issues.
For example when you sit on your legs too long, they can "Fall asleep" and cause similar issues as yours. Diabetes can affect your circulation as well as the Nerves and cause a neuropathy, etc. See the Doctor and get evaluated and diagnosed, so you can be treated best. Good luck.
