Is this a nerve pain ?

When sitting with leg folded under I get a sharp pain. Not enough to say ow but enough to notice. My health anxiety worries its a blood clot or cancer related...

    Nerve pain is more like shocks. It's more of a sudden sharp pain like you're being shocked because the nerves are repairing themselves or are trying to get a signal through. As Tavy said, you shouldn't sit on your legs for too long as you're cutting off blood by pressing on your blood vessels, muscles, arteries, ligaments, etc. The body needs proper blood flow to function well. It's more than likely that your muscles spontaneously flex or twitch or cramp because they've been compressed for too long.

    You are not supposed to sit on your leg, you are squashing  the muscles, no wonder it hurts.
