I have numbness and tingling in my left thigh and it feels like a rubber band is around my left groin which is worse during menstration. Caused by?

I would guess this is coming from your back.: The nerve supply for these areas comes out of the low back. You can be worse during your menstrual cycle because of the extra fluid and pelvic congestion will add pressure to the nerves. Sometimes the tingling on the thigh is specific to a nerve called the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve. It is fairly common with tight clothes or people employed that lean against the counter or have a heavy toolbelt. If it's really bothering you a lot you should go see your doctor and get checked out for the possibility of a lumbar disc. ...Read more

Tingling : Tingling in the thigh could be caused by a number of problems depending on the exact pattern of the tingling and other related features. Probably the most common cause of tingling on the anterolateral thigh ("anterolateral" is a medical term meaning roughly "toward the outside of the front") is a condition called meralgia paresthetica. This is caused by a pinching of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve. This nerve can get pinched in people, like me, who are a bit too generously-proportioned. It can also get pinched in other ways. Tingling in a band of skin, associated with a "bubbly" rash, could be shingles. Other things that might cause tingling in the thigh could include a process affecting the spinal cord or spinal nerve roots. Some of these things could be serious, so it is a good idea to see a doctor rather than try self-diagnosis. ...Read more

Neurologist: I doubt that the facial pains are related but the other symptoms suggest a disc pressing on a nerve root emanating from the left lower spine. A neurologist is best qualified to evaluate you for this and for what appears to be facial neuralgia..Appropriate tests will be ordered after the evaluation if your symptoms persist. ...Read more
