In brief: Numbness
Numbness in the hip area can be from a peripheral cause (meralgia paresthetica -- irritation of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve) or central -- disc irritation of a nerve at the spinal cord level -- best to see your doctor to help sort this out and to discuss treatment options.
