For about 3 years I've had this depression in my thigh, just above the knee. It wasn't always there. Prior to the indent in my thigh I had numbness and tingling all over my left leg, and after I shower or when I stand too long, my inner knee seems to swell and become red, really painful. Then one day I was running my hands down my legs and I noticed a very evident indent in my thigh. It's like a small, wide ditch. I went to a two separate doctors, one telling me I pinched a nerve and that's why I had numbness, and the other saying the muscle caved because it was weak. I've been working out since and nothing has happened. I can't have weight on my leg, I sleep with a pillow in between my legs because it starts tingling when pressed against my other leg. It's the pain of my life. I'd like to know what it is so I can treat it. I thought maybe it was a blood clot, but I'm sure that would have killed me by now. I'm to the point where I'd rather cut it off then live with it, it's just so bitterly annoying.
What do you think?
