burning, pulling pins and needles sensation in top of left thigh.....?


Over the past 2 months or so I have been gettin this wierd sensation in my left thigh. Initially I put this down to either a trapped nerve or just how I had been sitting. I am overweight, a UK size 24. It can be quite painful at times, but only seems to happen on an evening, whilst chilling in front of the TV or in bed.
Has anyone else had anything similar or does anyone have any ideas what it could be?

Thanks xx

Hey there :-)

Scoping out the threads and came across this! Its prob a moot point now! Ya I had this too, still have it. Its more the right leg...started off just be when I was sitting now when I walk get burning down front of my thigh. Went to docs they think it nerve, pressure of the growing tummy on the nerves in that area! x

It sounds like it could be meralgia parasthetica. It's caused by the extra weight pushing on the nerves in your hips. I have this myself, although I had it before becoming pregnant.

I get pain that sounds similar, there's pain and burning and tightness where my right hip and thigh meet. But my pain kind of starts in my lower back. I've been told it could be Sciatica pain which is common during pregnancy.

Wow! Id forgotten about this thread lol

I went to doctor and he said its more than likely sciatica but he couldnt give a definite diagnosis without MRIs etc.

I still have it from time to time but have learnt to deal with it xx
