For about half a year now, the outside of my right thigh from hip to knee, is numb. When I stretch it I feel a painless tingling and burning sensation, but the rest of the time it's just numb. I run and bike 4 times a week vigorously and am in very good cardiovascular condition. I binge eat sugar sometimes and my sensitivity to sugar and high glycemic foods is strong although after blood tests a year ago I was deemed not diabetic or hypoglycemic.... I did have a head injury upon hitting my head on a rock skiing where I fractured the orbital bone of my skull and had a concussion. I spent three days in the hospital out of precaution for a potential brain infection, but the doctor told me that no damage, -bruising or other- was done to my brain. He just said to expect it to take a few months to get full memory capability back. I don't know what else could be linked to my numb thigh. Is there a professional out there with advice on whether or not to get it checked out?
ps, i don't have health insurance, so unless there's real serious implications here, i wouldn't go to a doctor. Thanks for any help
