I have been dealing with a burning sensation on my left thigh the very center. The burning pain feels like I'm receiving a tattoo( best way to desribe it). It is not constant. It comes then goes leaving the area numb where it had been. I thought it had started after a lifting session I had while doing squats. The area where the burning started is now numb to touch but i do have deep pain still. While carrying a large dog the burning sensation now continued down to the upper part of my left knee. That skin is now numb. Either side of the area i still have feeling it is just where the burning starts that i lose feeling. The numbness of the first area has been with me for around 1 month now and has not gotten better. This is very strange to me and not sure what would cause this. I would love any info someone might have to help with this situation. Unfortunitly a Dr's appt has not been an option for I just moved to the area and started working. My current workplace does not offer insurance and im still investigating different plans I could pick up on my own.:confused::confused:
