Why do the backs of my legs tingle when I'm scared?

I've noticed that when I am either at great heights, or looking at a picture of great heights, I get a furious tingling/contraction in my hamstrings and the backs of my hips. Why? What possible connection is there between fear and the backs of my legs? It's not sometimes, it's every time.
