Meralgia Paratethetica

Posted by lotsofpain @lotsofpain, Dec 18, 2020

After I had my first hip replacement I got a lot of burning in my thigh wish eventually went away I am now starting to get it again and I'm not quite sure what to do I am waiting for a hip replacement on the other side and I also have quite severe osteoarthritis in my spine. It is helped by lying down but can suddenly come on for no reason does anybody have any advice

@lotsofpain Meralgia paresthetica is a condition characterized by tingling, numbness and burning pain in the outer part of your thigh. The condition is caused by compression of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve, which supplies sensation to your upper leg. If you can get a diagnostic nerve block in your lateral femoral cutaneous nerve, that should tell you if what you're experiencing is meralgia paresthetica.
