Pinched Nerve: Meralgia paresthetica is a pinched nerve syndrome. If conservative care and injections don't help you may have a pinched nerve in your back. I would suggest seeing a pain/spine specialist to evaluate you further to evaluate what level and what can be done to treat you. There are interventional treatments besides medications and surgeries that might reduce or eliminate the pain altogether.
