Thanks for your query,

If its the numbness or sensation of pins and needles you are having in the thigh I could say it could be due to weakness in the nerves .

This is well corrected by taking Multivitamin supplements specially ones with Vit B12.

Also i do suggest you to consult a neurologist to rule out peripheral neuropathy which do present the same way in the early times.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them.
