Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Hi there.
Pain of such nature can be due to 3 main reasons:
1. Tingling Thigh Syndrome: Although rarely permanent, individuals who wear their jeans too tight can experience nerve problems called meralgia paresthetica.
How to Know: If your thigh tingles with no explanation.
What to Do: Don't wear your extra tight jeans too often. You may want to buy a pair in the next size for more regular wear.
2- Arthritis of the hip joint. For this get an Xray done and consult an orthopaedic surgeon.
3- Radiculopathy or nerve involvement. For this you must keep your sugar in control. Star taking tab pregablin on a regular basis.
Good luck.
