Why am i getting severe pain in thighs after c-section ?

I have severe pain in my left left localized on the outer thigh from the knee up. It started after having a C section 6 weeks ago. I was given a spinal tap anestetic to numb me and keep me awake during the procedure. The area of my left leg is numb and sensitive to touch. Then sharp prickly pain shoots through it like electric shock or pins sticking me. Pain medication has not taken this pain away. It has been unbearable. I have had Sciatic Nerve pain before in the right leg but it was not the same feeling I m having now in my left. This has been going on since May 10, 2011 (A little over 6 weeks). Carla
