I understand your concern. Let me help you in decoding some of the symptoms that you are having. A numb patch on the outer aspect of the thigh is commonly seen in a condition called meralgia paresthetica
. It happens when one of the nerves coming down from the abdomen across the groin into the thigh gets impinged upon by soft tissue in the groin. Usually the pendulous abdomen is the one to blame. I suggest you meet a neurologist
who will be able to help you. In severe cases decompression of the nerve can be done. I am not sure about the "upper body pain disoder" diagnosis. The symptom you are complaining about is seen in disc prolapse
in cervical region (neck) giving rise to radiculopathy
. Again an MRI will be of help to rule that out. As for the hips it might be related to the weight but again a detailed examination by an orthopaedic surgeon
will help. Hope this has helped you.
