See a Physician : Your symptoms suggest a nerve being irritated. Treatment is based upon the cause of the irritation. A Physician would be able to get a history and examine you to determine the cause. The cause determines the treatment

?meralgia: A nerve over the anterolateral thigh, called the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve of the thigh, can get trapped over the top of the hip bone (superior iliac crest), and gets worse with tight belts or tight clothes. Symptoms do respond to nerve pain suppressant meds such as Lyrica (pregabalin). Would a Concierge visit help get this all pulled together??
