Maybe nerve pressed: A person who gets numbness, tingling, or odd sensations in a part of his body only when in certain positions, is likely pressing on the nerve to that part of the body. Pressing on the blood vessels to that part of the body is also possible, but less likely. The person can see his primary care doctor and show him exactly what happens.

What to do for numbness in left upper thigh?

Several things: Upper thigh numbness is often due to something called meralgia paresthetica; this is due to a nerve that gets pinched in the front part of the upper thigh. This is more likely to happen if a person is overweight and has a belly, or wears tight fitting clothes. Weight loss, loose fitting clothes, and sometimes medications are the appropriate treatments.

I had an angiogram. A week ago now I am feeling numbness in my thigh. Is this normal?

I had an angiogram. A week ago now I am feeling numbness in my thigh. Is this normal?

Likely transient: The catheter enters a femoral blood vessel in the inguinal region, where there are cutaneous nerves providing sensation. Since the insertion involves a small incision, the local nerves can be temporarily injured, but should recover fully within 4 weeks. Check with your doctor if this does not reverse.

Is it normal to have some numbness in the front part of my thigh after having a hysterectomy?

Is it normal to have some numbness in the front part of my thigh after having a hysterectomy?

Yes: There is a nerve that traverses through the inside of your body and provides sensation to your inner thigh that can be compressed during hysterectomy. So this numbness is normal, but it should come back with time. If continues to be numb after 2-3 weeks, talk to your doctor. Not typical for it to be cut in surgery, but that can happen, so keep tabs on it and inform your doctor if doesn't return.

Numbness on middle and lateral side of thigh seemingly resembling Meralgia for Three days after injury. Will these symptoms go away on their own?

Numbness on middle and lateral side of thigh seemingly resembling Meralgia for Three days after injury. Will these symptoms go away on their own?

Depends: There are different kinds of nerve injury. A mild injury in which the nerve is stretched or stunned can resolve on its own in days to weeks. A more severe injury in which the nerve is cut or torn but the nerve sheath is intact can take longer--nerve regrowth of about one inch per month is a rule of thumb. Some injuries don't heal. Its important to address nutrient deficiencies if you have them

Check with doctor: There is a common condition called "meralgia paresthetica, " which results from pressure on one of the nerves which serves the thigh. Pressure caused by an enlarging belly can cause this; so can a tool belt! Please verify this with your OB provider, though. Lgromkomd.
