Hi Can anyone help? Just today I bent over and felt a burning pain in my upper right thigh, straight after it went numb. It's been like this all day, to the extent that I pinched myself and couldn't feel a thing..... what could this be? Very Worried.

  • You need to have an MRI of your back (lumbar region) done. Sounds like a slipped disc or something in your back pressing on the nerves that lead to your thigh. If you have trouble urinating or putting pressure on your bladder you need to go to the ER. Kiera
