Posted on Thu, 28 May 2015
Question: I have numbness in my leg. It is mainly in my thigh. When I am tired or have been standing for a short time my leg begins to really be painful. When this happens and I touch my thigh it feels like it is burning. Even though there is a burning sensation I cannot feel my hand on my thigh touching it.
