NERVE ISSUE: Your description suggests problem with lateral femoral nerve of thigh, causing a problem called meralgia paresthetica, which may be caused by tight objects about the waist. Your doctor can confirm and design a treatment program if this does not depart over the next few weeks. Keep tight objects away from hips and waist.

Neuralgia: Nerve pain can take many forms, with burning or stabbing being common. A pain in the anterior and lateral thigh may be due to meralgia paresthetica, which simply is a painful syndrome of the nerve serving that area. Other possibilities are a pinched nerve in the back. Rarely, diseases such as lyme or cancer, or trauma can affect these nerves.
