What Causes Numbness In Upper Thigh
Spinal issue: The upper thigh is innervated by nerves from the T4 and t5 interspinal nerve space. If the thigh at that spot is getting numb, then you might have to have an analysis of the spinal column. Do not see a chiropractor. See you family doctor for a start or an orthopedic surgeon who can make the proper diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more
Several things: Upper thigh numbness is often due to something called meralgia paresthetica; this is due to a nerve that gets pinched in the front part of the upper thigh. This is more likely to happen if a person is overweight and has a belly, or wears tight fitting clothes.

Pain in right upper thigh slightly abv knee (inner side) and calf with foot numbness on and off and extreme knee pain when sitting, no clots, ideas?
Knee, hip, back: If the thigh problem is immediately above the knee this could be a knee problem (cartilage, bakers cyst, joint problem). Knee pain rarely radiates up the leg. Anything higher up is unlikely to be knee. This could also be referred pain from the hip or back. A good physical examination by someone experienced with these problems should give you the answer. ...Read more

Are you sure it is: In the muscle? Or maybe more superficial, in the subcutaneous tissue? Doesn't sound serious, unless there is weakness in the leg. If it is loss of sensation, its is nerve to the skin of the area that is affected. A small area is of little significance, unless you have other symptoms. ...Read more

Pinched nerve likely: There is a nerve that supplies sensation to the front of the thigh, that passes under a ligament in the groin. When there is swelling in this area, the skin of the anterior thigh can be numb. Called myalgia paresthetica. Swelling could easily occur after childbirth. Since this has gone on this long, I recommend seeing your doctor to be sure. Could also be a pinched nerve in your lower back. ...Read more
