Numbness pain and tingling after 5 minutes or so when walking
Meralgia paresthetica causes upper lateral leg pain and numbness.
I have pain along left buttocks and down the side of leg almost to the knee. I am a runner and have not been able to jog in months, The doc ordered x-rays but have hesitated due to COVID-19.
Yes, I do have but first a couple questions.
1. Take a needle and prick the sides of your thighs and compare. Is there a significant difference?
2. Can you see the inguinal ligament in the graphic? Take a little oil on your left thumb and, starting at the iliac crest bone run your finger through the groin and then down the inner thigh. Be gentle as the femoral nerve and artery lie there; you will cross them. Is it particularly tender on the left?
3. Bend straight forwards, then backwards and to the side. Is there any pain? Where?
4. Sitting in a kitchen chair, flex your head onto your chest, and then ask hubby to lift first your right leg and then the left parallel to the ground. Is it painful, and where?
Give me some precise answers and we will take this further.
