Hello there. It could be due to some disease affecting your blood vessels in your lower limb. And since you said that yours is a job which requires you to be sedentary and you are overweight also, therefore peripheral vascular disease is the first thing that should be ruled out. Get a Doppler scan done and consult a surgeon. Regards
