MeralgiaPeristhetica: The anterior femoral cutaneous nerve exits the pelvis right under "the pointer" (anterior superior iliac spine).It can be injured by a tight belt and cause numbness on the outside of the upper thigh. It feels cold as well. Body numbness is unusual and could be due to tension.

You could have: A pinched or irritated NERVE in your low back at the L4-L5 level (lumbar Spine) which is causing your low back pain plus "RADICULOPATHY" causing the alteration in sensation on the side of your knee! See an ORTHOPEDIST foe evaluation/treatment! Hope this helps! Dr Z

Numbness: Right sided numbness can signify a lesion like a growth on the left side of your brain (cerebral cortex). A demyelinating process like multiple sclerosis is less likely as scattered areas of numbness would be more apt to occur with that disorder. Nevertheless you should consult a neurologist and the appropriate examination and testing will be done in order to make a diagnosis.

Should I worry about numbness in the skin of my upper leg? When rubbing the right side of my right thigh, I feel a strange numbness.

What would cause an electrocution sensation to back of head with numbness in both legs?

Multiple things: One reason that comes to my mind is arthritis of the neck with pinched nerves. However, other more serious disorders such as multiple sclerosis or other structural issues need to be ruled out. If symptoms persist, I suggest you go for a consultation with a neurologist

Paresthesia: A feeling of prickling or touching or tingling is what we call paresthesia. When it occurs all over, it is a good idea to get some lab work done. Changes in blood chemistry are a common cause of this symptom.
