I woke up and the left side of my leg below the knee, the whole bottom part, was cold. What are some causes of it? It happens quite a few times.

In brief: Circulation?

May be as a result of the position you are in when you sleep.
You may be decreasing the circulation to that area.

Be sure you aren't lying on the left side or on your stomach with anything bunched up at the hip or knee. If the coldness is accompanied by change in color or loss of feeling, and if it lasts more than a few minutes after you get up, or you have varicose veins or any blood pressure or heart problems, you should be checked to be sure that the blood vessels in that leg are open.

May be due to poor circulation of leg or pressing nerve.
