I have been woke up with a pain followed by tingling & numbness in my left leg at the outer thigh. Feels less tingly and burns to touch over time 1hr.

See details: This is likely to be meralgia paresthetica which is a compression of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve. It often resolves with a little time. If it persists, have the issue evaluated.

Pinched nerve: Whether from back ( from pressure on nerve from a herniated disc for example) or from spastic muscle in buttock putting pressure on the nerve, should help to take an anti-inflammatory medicine like Ibuprofen if you don't have kidney problems or allergic. Look piriformis muscle stretches and strengthen abdomen and back muscles as part of a back program with physical therapy good place to start.

As : As with most pain conditions, there can be a variety of potential problems that can cause the pain that you are describing. It is difficult to diagnose with the short description given and without a proper physical examination. Pain is often a sign of inflammation. Inflammation often occurs when something is irritated. Irritation occurs from a variety of different things. If the pain does not improve, you should see someone who is qualified to make an appropriate diagnosis. This may be nerve related, spine related, or something else. As always, i would highly suggest you do your research when seeking medical help. Find a physician who meets, or even better, exceeds the basic qualifications to practice in their specific field or sub-specialty.

My son has 2nd degree burn and has wound on his left leg, he got burn last Tuesday. Can he swim in the sea on Sunday?

My son has 2nd degree burn and has wound on his left leg, he got burn last Tuesday. Can he swim in the sea on Sunday?

Probably yes: If there is a blister that has not popped, or if it has popped and the skin beneath is dried. If not, the salt will hurt and he will let you know! But as long as the sea water is fresh and he does not complain, it is probably fine. Salt water is often used to clean burns, but it does not have quite as much salt.

I : I feel it is wise to have this evaluated further. You are having problems just with walking. That is not good. Have this evaluated be someone knowledgeable with this kind of problem such as a physiatrist, orthopedic surgeon, or a neurosurgeon.

I have had red round burn looking sores on my left leg , they went away and caused scars.Ms & mvp --they are back an my neuro asked me how i got a burn?

Probably not related: Ms primarily effects the central nervous system and most commonly results in motor dysfunction whereas peripheral sensory neuropathy is more commonly associated with other co editions or disease such as diabetes. Numbness could result in unrecognized injury.If this is a recurring lesion, i would suggest a possible biopsy to exclude other possible problems.

I had a vaginal hysterectomy a month ago.I removed my womb but not ovaries. Now my left leg goes numb, burn, tingly feeling. Is that normal?

I had a vaginal hysterectomy a month ago.I removed my womb but not ovaries. Now my left leg goes numb, burn, tingly feeling. Is that normal?

Yes, but: Sometimes nerves are stretched or pinched in the course of surgery. Since we can't see those nerves , we can only try to avoid any pressure that woul lead to your symptoms. If the numbness doesn't go away in another month, contact your surgeon for a careful neurologic exam. Tingling can sometimes be a normal feeling as nerves heal (like when you cross your legs, and the lower leg goes numb).

There are little red itchy bumps on my arms and left leg that look like insect bites but appear out of no where and burn under warm water. Any ideas?

Possible: Some people can get a "heat rash" that worsens when the skin is hot and usually gets better when cooled. However, to really be certain you should have this problem examined.

Nerve issue: You are probably dealing with a lower back issue. Possibly a disk compression. Consult with your primary physician, an orthopedist or a chiropractor for an examination.

Left leg always seems cold?

Left leg always seems cold?

Interesting: Trauma to a joint can make the whole leg cold. You are a bit young to have a circulation problem. If you have had trauma, or if the skin or nails change color, seek help and examination.

Im having pain in my left leg like a pulling pain what could it be?

Muscle cramp/strain : Your calf muscles (gastrocnemius and soleus) can become strained or partially torn from a single significant force/injury or from a cumulative effect from overuse. The muscles can cramp (contract), and feel tight. This would cause pain in the thicker area along the back of your leg. Rest, ice, ace wrap and decreased use should allow the tightness to subside. Stay hydrated to help prevent cramps.

Small bump on left leg?

?: This is impossible to even guess at unless we had a much more detailed history and exam. You need to see a doctor for this.

Pain in lower left leg while walking?

Pain in lower left leg while walking?

Area of pain: often details the reason. Knee, ankle pain would obviously imply a joint problem. Pain/fatigue in the calves that increases with increasing exercise implies a circulatory problem. Pain with swelling in one lower leg is actually an emergency since the circulatory problem can be a blood clot that could come loose and go to the lung. This would be pain ALL the Time and generally a LOT of swelling.

My left leg is warm when i touch it.

My left leg is warm when i  touch it.

Warm leg area: This sign or symptom suggests a local infection or other inflammatory problem - the leg area matters - is it upper or lower, focal or generalized; is there redness; is there tenderness? is it swollen? all these matter to figure out the problem
