Neuropathic symptom: The sensation you refer'd be consistent with a neuropathic one if you can't find another explanation why your inner thigh should feel warm. Does it feel warm to the touch, Is it red, swollen, painful? These symptoms, in addition, to feeling warm might suggest an infection or other inflammatory process. Otherwise, see your doc.
