Thigh-burning : Sound like inflammation of the nerves. The nerves of the thigh can be entrapped by pressure on the border between the thigh and lower abdomen. This often occurs from tight pants along with the waistline or a large obese belly compressing it. You could also have problems stemming from the lower back or inside the pelvis.
