Welcome to JustAnswer Health...and thank you for your question. I am a verified Expert and am delighted to help you today. I would recommend you see a Neurologist, this may be due to a nerve problem in your back, or buttocks ( sciatica). Here is some information on sciatica to compare:

Numbness radiating down the leg from the knee is probably neurological....its ok to see your vascular doctor and ask him if he feels it might be nerve related.
