Yes: Numbness or tingling in the anterior thigh are characteristic symptoms. It can be a short term issue or can be a lengthy problem. See a neurologist if you have not done so already. Ask about a trial of Gabapentin (neurontin) or lyrica (pregabalin).
Dr. Bennett Machanic
Neurology 52 years experience
Yes: Discuss with your doctor, as management solutions are available.
