Meralgia paresthetic: It is basically a pinched nerve at the junction of the abdomen and leg (groin). A series of nerve blocks can give the best results along with some specific medications such as gabapentin. Avoiding pressure is better for long term. Avoid tight heavy belts, lose weight if you are overweight. Sometimes it can happen in pregnant women and it resolves after delivery. Good luck
