For the last 2 weeks my right thigh feels asleep. It is my right leg, and only on the far right side, from just to the right of my knee up about 10 inches. The underside of that leg feels fine and the left side of my knee up feels normal. But that small area feels almost dead. I can pinch it and dont feel it until I actually put some muscle into it hard. I can hit the area with my fist and do not feel it really at all.. It feels like its not my skin on the that part of my leg.. Anyone ever heard of this before on such a small area? I am active duty US Air Force and I want to go to the doctor but I would like to learn more before going in. Thanks~

  • Sounds like meralgia paresthetica. I have been suffering with it for 14 months since a fall at work. Go to Dr ask about a nerve conduction study. Takes about 20 min. Basicly it is an empinged nerve usually in the groin area.
