I've been having a tingling sensation for the past two weeks on my top right inner thigh near my groin area. The sensation comes and goes.
I've been getting tingling in my left thigh different times of the day don't know what's causing it. It happens periodically and it stops when i touch it or rub it.
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

Lumbar pain: Pain in the back can be from either a muscle, a bone, or a nerve disorder. The tingling is a sign of some neurological process. Together with back pain, this is often seen in problems involving the lumbar nerve roots. This can result from a herniated disc, a bone spur, or other processes. Weakness is a more worrisome symptom that would require more urgent attention. ...Read more
