While doing lunges had tingling/mild pain down lateral thigh in leg that was behind me. Cause? Okay to try to work muscle?
Yes, but carefully?: You can pull the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve during activity that tightens the inguinal area, compressing it. If chronic, o recurring, it is called "meralgia paresthetica. You may have also experienced transient piriformis muscle spasm, which can compress the sciatic nerve of its branches. The problem does not seem to be a disc. I would slowly resume activity. If it recurs, see your doctor! ...Read more

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

One should first ask "where is the lesion" Brain? (TIA /stroke / migraine, etc) Cord? Nerve? ...Read more

Happens to everyone: Compressing a limb at night is something that we all do at some time or another in our lifetime. Doesn't matter if you're overweight or even UNDERweight a person's ENTIRE bodyweight is much greater than the weight of just 1 limb, right? Sooo, the ability to compress a limb by the body by sleeping on it in a funny way is great. ...Read more

I've just had a lower leg dvt but I'm experiencing tingling in my upper thigh. Could you help please?
Dvt: I would repeat a lower leg ultrasound to check the status of the DVT, to make sure it is not growing in size and travelling up the leg. A DVT is dangerous and sometimes an IVC filter is needed to protect against lung embolism. Go to the ER and seek treatment. Blood thinners are also needed. ...Read more

Prev complete PT for poss herniated disc. Having pain in r leg from thigh to toes w/tingling in back of r calf- is this poss related to disc isssue?
Pinched nerve: The pain could be residual irritation from the pinched nerve in the low back. Alternatively, a compressed peroneal nerve can cause this pain. The peroneal nerve runs on the outside of the knee (fibular head) and when inflamed causes pain in the calf and down to the toes. See a pain management physician for a nerve block or cortisone injection. Neuropathic medicine can help too. ...Read more
