Thigh goes numb and kind of burns ?

If lateral, meralgia: One possibility is a very common condition called meralgia paresthetica. This causes severe burning pain in the lateral thigh with no real weakness or other symptoms further down in the leg. It is caused by entrapment of a nerve branch under the inguinal ligament, is often relieved by weight loss, and can be the first symptom of early diabetes. If severe, medications or nerve block can help. ...Read more

What is a good treatment to relieve a burning, stinging, pins and needles type pain shooting down the side of my thigh and into my knee?

What is a good treatment to relieve a burning, stinging, pins and needles type pain shooting down the side of my thigh and into my knee?

Neuro specialist: You may have a condition called meralgia paresthetica but as the burning goes into your knee, you should have an MRI and see a neurologist or neurosurgeon to make sure this is not a herniated disk or problem with the L3 or L4 nerve. Sometimes far lateral disks can cause pressure on a nerve ganglion and cause those symptoms. Seek a specialist to help clear it up. ...Read more

What cause a burning sensation in lower leg right below the knee . The burning sensation  comes and goes.  It's not swellon or warm to touch.

Hard to say: Answer depends on lots of information that we don't have. How long have you had it? When does it occur? Do you have any other medical problems? This is the sort of question best answered after an in-depth history & exam. Unless, after tracking the pain, you can relate it to an activity (certain exercise, prolonged sitting/standing in a certain position or chair) or a particular style of shoe. ...Read more

Sensation like pins and needle but not numb, with popping sensation on the top of big toe when i walk and it shoots to top of foot a little, no pain?

Bone-nion.: It sounds like the paresthesia is isolated to the area of the great toe and occasionally proximal to the mid foot. The popping is in the area of the dorsal great toe. A common cause for symptoms like these is the middle stage of bunion development. Both the nerve and tendon can become affected by the underlying boney elements. Have it evaluated by a foot specialist. ...Read more

Pain in outside skin on left side of penis when touched.  Also burns and tingles some.  This goes into my scrotum, which is itchy.  All one sided thou?

Top of the head feels numb and i feel a burning sensation and pressure.Got 30small inactive demyelinations MS was excluded.Stays1-2weeks and goes away?

Inactive myelination: Thank you for your interesting question. So MS was excluded, but there are 30 inactive myelinations? Perhaps these were caused by smoking, an injury, or? The symptom you mentioned- numbness and burning on top of the head- is not one that suggests MS either. If you are otherwise feeling well, treat symtomatically (try ice?) If it continues to bother you, it may be time for another check up. ...Read more

Which means he needs to get treatment started right away, to try to prevent chronic bad pains afterward. Other skin problems, and problems related to changes to nerves going to the skin, can cause similar symptoms. Of course, he could also just have a sunburn on the back of his neck. ...Read more

Pain on top of foot, burning & tingling, radiates up outter leg almost feels like electrical sensation, what's the cause?

Many possibilities: Unfortunately, the process of getting sensation from your foot to your brain has many steps, and as such there are many things that can go wrong.
