What causes throbbing pain in outer left thigh?
Likely to be due to pinching of a nerve.
Welcome and thanks for your query.
I understand your concern.
It is likely to be a condition called ' Meralgia Paraesthetica' which results most often from pinching of the lateral cutaneous nerve by the fascia.
You can be helped by physical therapy, such as stretching and massage
Avoid long periods of standing, walking, cycling, or other aggravating activity
Lose weight and exercise to strengthen abdominal muscles
Wear clothing that is loose at the upper front hip area
Apply heat, ice, or electrical stimulation
Take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications for a few days
Remove hair in affected area and apply Lidocaine patches
If you are not better with these measures, it is better to see a doctor, have yourself examined and tested.
