Mild Tingling Thigh
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Thighs feel weak, but walk & run. Worried about GBS. I have mild tingling in hands & feet that come & go. What's the outlook if I were to have it?
Unclear : Guillain-Barré Syndrome (or GBS) is a rapidly progressing disorder where an attack on the nerves by the body's immune system causes significant rapidly assending numbness and weakness (typically starting in feet and/or hands and then progressing upwards). If your numbness issues has been going on for a while then it is less likely GBS. However only a neurologist will be able to tell for sure. ...Read more
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.
Wrong question: 'thigh tingling' _is_ a description of a feeling; there is no further definition (except what part of the thigh!). It may be _caused_ by an entrapped sensory nerve that goes under the groin ligament, tightness of nerves in the low spine, and/or tight muscles in the lower abdomen or buttock. Rarely it may be associated with a wider condition of nerves. ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Little pain in my thigh (light electricity) or tingling sensation that causes discomfort. Why? What is this? I apply "deep heat" & it works sometimes.
Lateral femoral...: cutaneous nerve syndrome, also known as meralgia paresthetica. This can cause burning, tingling or numbness in the outer portion of the thigh. Have you been lifting weights? Squats or Deadlifting? anything that increases pressure in the groin can compress the nerve and cause this problem. The treatment is pretty simple. You could also have other issues with the spinal nerves. Time to see your MD. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
