Meralgia

Extremity-joint-knee
You describe a common problem due to compression of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve at the hip, which seems manifest at a distance. This is called meralgia paresthetica, and may be associated with tight objects around the waist and hip. Unlikely, but possible is nerve problem from lower back. Contact your doctor and get this addressed.

Numbness equates to a nerve issue. Since this is one sided, consider a back problem. Consult your local neurologist or orthopedic surgeon.

Tingling and numbness in right hand and it gets cold. right leg from my knee down swells bad. they checked for a blood clot but that wasn't it?

Get checked by a --

Deep_vein_thrombosis
Neurologist for the hand problem as it sounds like Carpal T Syndrome, and see your PCP or Gyn to get evaluated for a pelvic mass, etc, causing a Rt sided swelling, if a possible Clot has been excluded. You may require an US scan of the pelvis for it. See if a Carpal Brace will help with the numbness/tingling or not.

Could be irritation to the trochanter of your hip. This could involve the trochanter or likely the bursa or oil sack associated with it. Try an antiinflmatory for a few days.

Prescribed heel lift for leglength issue, right leg but stopped wearing it after experiencing numbness/tingling in knee, right leg. sensations persist?

Get Checked

Knee
If the heel life change was too dramatic height wise id could have changed your gait and affected your back. Persistent numbness and tingling is usually due to nerve irritation. Please consult with your doctor

Numbness in leg portion between thighs n knees evn after standing for 10-15 min. What is the cause?

Back problem

Leg
It could be a trapped nerve from a bulging disk in your back. Could be a too tight muscle as well. See your doctor for an evaluation. Physical therapy may help, and I know acupuncture will.
