Burning Thigh Pain

My son was born by cesarean 5 months ago. During the surgery there were a few problems with my breathing and CPR was administered. For three weeks following the surgery my right leg went limp or numb and I struggled to walk dragging it. The antiflamitories I was given a week after the surgery lessoned these symptoms considerably. Now 5 months later I am getting these sparatic, verticle, sharp pains that affect the same spot each time on my right outer thigh. Honestly these pains feel like a pulled muscle that is also being saverely burned by a hot curling iron.

The area affected is now also beginning to feel numb with very little feeling (no pins and needles yet), I have not pulled anything to my knowledge.
The pain is becoming more freaquent affecting my sleep and walks causing me to scream out in pain and the sensation last only a minute or two.

Could this be damaged nerves resulting from my surgery or simply a pinched nerve?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
