I have been trying to get a clear diagnosis for the right thigh problem that I am having no so far no one seems to have an answer. My problem - well the side of the right thigh has a tingling & burning sensation and the top of the right thigh and eventually the side of the right thigh goes numb when I stand too long, normally more than 5 minutes in one spot or if I walk too long, normally more than 5 minutes and sometimes even if I sit too long in one spot, normally more than 1 hour. I have had back suregery - removal of the L5 disk, 7 epidural injections, 1 navi cath procedure and am set up now for lumbar facet join injections, which I know is for the back pain but I also need to have something done about the right thigh problem. Can anyone out there please help!!!:confused:

  • I think it sounds very likely that this problem originates from your back also. There are lots of nerve connections and it sounds like one might be pinched.
