Outer thigh pain, numbness, tingling, burning. Tender to touch. Pull in muscle at beginning of year, deep laceration up the thigh when younger.

Nerve pain: This sounds like nerve pain. However because there is tenderness to touch there could be some inflammation or infection going on as well. I would recommend you visit your doctor for a proper examination and possibly X Rays or ultrasound of the Lowry back, hips and thigh

See your surgeon: You have already had back surgery!? Already on lots of meds! How long since surgery? Back surgery is done to relieve these symptoms, but may yield disappointing results. It may take months to recover. Sometimes surgery makes back problems worse. Mri is of limited use. You need to spend some serious time with your surgeon.

I have had left lateral upper thigh numbness x 3 wks. Now deep aching inside. Numbness is slowly traveling down leg.? Emg help diagnose

Yes: You are describing nerve pain. An EMG consists of testing the health and speed of your nerve function, followed by electrode insertion to the muscle for a specialist to access the nerve and muscle connections. This will answer the question of what nerve is causing your pain. Treatment and symptom control begin with a real diagnosis. Good luck.

Upper outer thigh: numbness on skin, sharp stabbing pain on muscle. When touched lightly I feel nothing. When scratched or pressed on sharp pain.?

Meralgia paresthetic: You likely have entrapment of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve at the hip, which causes a peculiar painful numbness. Often can be relieved by avoiding tight clothing or belts, and maybe helped with weight loss if one is overweight. Can be an early sign of diabetic neuropathy, but most cases self-limited and benign, .

Upper thigh numbness. Mri show problems l2-s1. 2 epidural no luck. But emg showed normal im confused now. What could be going on? Numb for 6 months

? MERALGIA?: Doubt MRI findings are cause, and epidural is not indicated unless radiculopathy. Was EMG complete? Did it examine both femoral nerve and lateral femoral cutaneous nerve of thigh? If not, does not rule out meralgia paresthetica, which may be your answer. Have conference with your doctor.

Low back pain with right thigh numbness and right arm/hand/wrist pain/numbness. Sneezing causes extreme aching pain in both arms. Thoughts on causes?

Low back pain with right thigh numbness and right arm/hand/wrist pain/numbness. Sneezing causes extreme aching pain in both arms. Thoughts on causes?

Spine specialist W/U: It coulb be from disc disease in your neck or high in the back creating some nerve root irritation from the sudden negative intrathoracic pressure created by the sneeze. When not sneezing the disc may look normal, which makes it very difficult to diagnose. The same phenomenon can result from a build up of bone (osteophytes) near the central canal or the foramen where the nerves travel.
