Suggest treatment for sharp pain in the upper thigh
Hello and welcome
I appreciate your concern
Based on your description Meralgia paresthetica is one of the possiblities. It is caused by a compression of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve.
Nerve compression should be relieved. Tricyclic antidepressants and gabapentin can be used for treatingthe pain if the NSAIDS fail to improve the pain symptoms.
Peripheral Pulses should be examined and an ultrasound doppler of lower limbs should be done to look for a possible DVT.
Treatment would depend on the cause.
let me know if you have any query

DVT is deep vein thrombosis. It can occur when a blood clot or thrombus is formed in the deep veins in your legs in this case. Deep vein thrombosis can present with leg pain or swelling.
It can occur due to
genetic predisposition such as anticoagulant factor deficiency.
Immobility e.g fracture or prolonged bed ridden illness
Malignancies leading to a hypercoagulability state.
