Is any specific diet or multivitamin medicine meralgia paresthetica (nerve problem in out ER thigh)?

Self limited. No medication. This is a self limited problem. Usually goes away without much intervention. Avoid tight garments and lose weight if this is part of your problem. If it persists beyond a few months or gets really painful see your doc to consider meds.
Yes and No. There are no specific diets or multivitamins for entrapment of the lateral femoral subcutaneous nerve. Avoid tight pants that pinch and maybe lose weight. In the meantime, take a stiff brush (like a foot brush) and lightly brush the SKIN lightly at the site of pain and the surrounding 6 inches of skin Use and up and down motion. DO NOT brush deep or scratch the skin. Do this for 3 minutes 3 times.

I have recently started experiencing numbness on my outer left thigh. If left untreated, will meralgia paresthetica cause any damage?

Neuromuscular. The worst meralgia paresthetica could get is permanent numbness and neuropathic pain in the lateral thigh. This is commonly seen after sudden drastic changes in weight (gain or loss). Most of the time is self limited and improves over time. We recommend madications like lyrica, (pregabalin) gabapentin, Cymbalta or Amitriptyline for severe pain only as the recovery occurs regardless. Read more...

After 2.5 yrs. Of leg numbness & pain, I have diagnosis of meralgia paresthetica. What are common treatments & likelihood of success after so long?

Pinched Nerve. Meralgia paresthetica is a pinched nerve syndrome. If conservative care and injections don't help you may have a pinched nerve in your back. I would suggest seeing a pain/spine specialist to evaluate you further to evaluate what level and what can be done to treat you. There are interventional treatments besides medications and surgeries that might reduce or eliminate the pain altogether. Read more...
2nd look. Meralgia paresthetica is burning pain and numb feeling in the outside and front of thigh i.E pant pocket area. Usually it resolves after about 6 months and putatively occurs by a pinching or disease of a nerve called lateral cutaneous nerve of thigh. The duration of symptoms raises some doubt about diagnosis. Also if by "leg" you mean some other area than thigh then also doubt is raised. Read more...
