Weird leg numbness...help!

I am 29 yrs old, female. No medical insurance. Husband thinks I am a bit of a hypochondriac. That being said, I don't want to go to the doctor unless something is really serious. I would estimate other than a very stubborn bronchitis I'm in decent overall health as far as I am aware.

I am having very mild tingling/numbness in my thigh, feels deep under the surface. The other day it was in my right hip and leg, today I am just barely feeling it in my thigh. It's mild, and I notice it more if I rub my thigh. Sometimes I notice it in the back as well as front.

I've noticed it in the same thigh awhile back, like many months or even a year ago, so its a chronic thing. Except, it seems to go away sometimes, then I start noticing it again.

Could it be something like a pinched nerve or nerve damage? I just want to make sure it's not something really bad.

Thanks!

Angie

  • I had a similar experience with tingling and numbness in my left thigh. I went to a Neurologist, He told me it was due to my being overweigt and position when the tingling occurs- a muscle is not gettig a g0od blood supply, so ths is the reasson the nerve did what it did. It eventually went away ( 6 mos. later..)
