What causes sudden numbness in outer right thigh?
Meralgia paresthetica is the likely diagnosis.
Hi XXXXXXX XXXXXXX
Thanks for being on healthcaremagic.com.
If you would have presented to me as an outpatient,I would have told you that the likely diagnosis in your case is 'meralgia paresthetica'.
Please get 'nerve conduction studies' done which may help in supporting the diagnosis.
Pregnancy,Obesity,Weight gain and tight fitting clothes are the factors which predispose to this condition.
Weight reduction and wearing loose clothes may help improve the symptoms.
Hope that I have answered your query.If you have some follow up questions,I shall be glad to answer else please close the thread,rate it and write a review as your rating will be of help to me.
