Thank you for posting your query.
The most likely cause of your symptoms is a condition, referred to as meralgia paresthetica
. In this condition, a nerve in the skin of the thigh region- the lateral cutaneous nerve of the thigh- gets slightly compressed at the level of groin. This results in symptoms such as pain, tingling, burning, numbness, etc over the outer aspect of the thigh.
It is a minor illness and responds well to medications such as pregabalin
Please consult a neurologist
