Hi welcome to

The skin of outside of the thigh is supplied by the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve which is often pinched and causes burning, numbness or tingling in that area. It is more common if you have lost or gained weight quickly or wear tight clothes that pinches the nerve. Lying on the nerve may also compress it and cause symptoms which may be why you wake up at night. THe pain take a while to develop, that is why you do not wake up strainght away.

Thigh and leg pain can also be from sciatica which happens from pinched nerves in lumbar vertebral area.

the pain in thigh whether it is at front or back.Backside could be due to sciatic nerve but front side pain will require investigation.Please try to consult a Orthopaedic surgeon who will examine you to rule out any abnormality .Till then take a multivitamin like cap-Becosule twice a day for 5 days along with pain killer prescribed by your doctor.
