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...

Developed meralgia paresthetica. Lost 80lbs. Have large pannus. Does panniculectomy become medically necessary now?

Maybe not. Depends on how bad the meralgia is. Since that is compression of a superficial sensory nerve and doesn't lead to any motor dysfunction then it might not be considered significant. If, on the other hand, the nerve irritation is causing severe neuropathic type pain then it might be considered significant enough to justify the surgery. Read more...

Can get better. Superficial nerves are often stretched during any surgery. They can take days to months to get better. At 3 weeks there is still hope. Injections sometimes help with the pain. Ultimately if you remain with a painful neuritis it may require surgery to get relief. Read more...
Try PEMF. There's not much in the literature that will help meralgia paresthetica. Gabapentin is a good idea. Increase the dose to just under that which makes you drowsy. Most drs. Don't use enough.

DO NOT brush deep or scratch the skin. Do this for 3 minutes 3 times. Read more...
