Re: Numb Leg
Jan 12, 2004
Good response from Sue. Numbness in thighs can be from a number of things, including meralgia paresthetica, referred back stuff, stretch injuries of femoral or sciatic nerves, diabetic stuff, etc. A lingering numbness is almost certainly worth getting evaluated. It doesn't mean commitment to treatment; just getting a better idea what's up. The first step, if anything, would probably be an MRI unless there is a more obvious cause. Meralgia, for example, can be caused by wearing a heavy belt (like a toolbelt). Sometimes it's simple.
