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. ...Read more

?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. ...Read more

I have numbness and tingling in my left thigh and it feels like a rubber band is around my left groin which is worse during menstration. Caused by?

I would guess this is coming from your back.: The nerve supply for these areas comes out of the low back. You can be worse during your menstrual cycle because of the extra fluid and pelvic congestion will add pressure to the nerves. Sometimes the tingling on the thigh is specific to a nerve called the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve. It is fairly common with tight clothes or people employed that lean against the counter or have a heavy toolbelt. If it's really bothering you a lot you should go see your doctor and get checked out for the possibility of a lumbar disc. ...Read more

Unpinch the nerve.: Sounds like you have a disk herniation. As long as the pain is tolerable, and you do not have progressive increasing weakness, or lose the ability to control the bladder or bowels, the vast majority of disk herniations can be treated without surgery. I recommend you get a good exam by a spine specialist, then follow instructions on use of medications, stretchs and activities modifications. ...Read more

Could be normal: You might have just compressed your sciatic nerve - the main nerve from your spine that extends all the way to the toes. Sometimes you can sit on this nerve "wrong" and cause compression and a transient tingling and numbness. If this only happens with certain seated positions, then I wouldn't worry. If you have random tingling, numbness, pain, or esp weakness, then go see a Primary Care doc. ...Read more
