What can I do to ease the pain and discomfort associated with meralgia paraesthetica? I can't sleep :'(
Meragia Parasthetica: is tough to treat. Compression of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve can be alleviated by avoidance of constricting clothing (corsets, work belts, etc) and weight loss but the recovery may take weeks to months. In the mean time I would treat this as neuropathic pain with anticonvulsants like gabapentin, antidepressants like Pamelor and if need be Narcotics and substance P depletors. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I am 25, obese and will start working out, dieting soon. Will symptoms of Meralgia paraesthetica subside once I lose weight? What can i do?
Very possibly ...: As I suspect you know, meralgia parenthetic is caused by compression of the nerve that supplies sensation to the skin of your thigh. Tight clothing, weight gain/obesity and pregnancy are common causes. You can expect it to get better with weight loss, & for most people the pain goes away within a few months. Wear looser clothing. You can take OTC acetaminophen or ibuprofen if needed. Good wishes:) ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Meralgia : Meralgia paresthetica is a very annoying neuropathy. It sometimes appears after gyn surgery or during pregnancy when the increasedsize of the belly puts pressure on the small nerve that supplies the skin on the outside of the thigh. This irritates that nerve and causes the burning, painful sensation. The nerve does not supply any muscles. The nerve passes from the pelvis to the thigh below the crest of the hip. Mri will not show it. Ultrasound is sometimes used. The treatment may include surgery to release the nerve or local anesthetic patches to decrease the pain. If you are carrying extra weight you can help take the pressure off by losing some weight. If you are a guy who wears a tool belt make sure it doesn't hang down too low. If you put your hands on your hips and point down with your pinky you will be at the approximate point where the nerve comes through the groin. I hope you find some relief. The only good news is that the problem is not in the spine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Meralgia paraesthetica I have numbness on thigh close to private area would a chiropractor make it worse or more numbness or worse having panic?
Who made Dx?: Meralgia paresthetica affects the anterolateral thigh. The upper medial thigh is innervated by other branches of the femoral nerve. Don't waste your money on a chiropractor. That's the same as no treatment at all. Whatever a chiropractor tells you he/she thinks the problem is, it will be wrong. Trust me on this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
