Question: Hello Sir
this post is to ask you about my friend, who is an unmarried girl aged 29. she was having some needle like pain sensation in her pelvis area from a long time. 18 days ago she visited her family Dr. and told her about it, he recommended an ultrasound and complete blood check up, by God's grace all the reports were normal. so he continued with his medications and asked her to come every alternate day, after a a week the pain reduced but since then it is like this then she went for her urine examination and its reports also were normal. this pain is not there when she wakes up in the morning but starts when she catches the bus to her office as that road is not in good condition she also undergoes jerks after reaching in office she has to sit on chair for a long time that also causes continuous pain though it is some what lesser as it was in the beginning even the dr. has reduced the no. of tablets he was giving earlier, now it is only a ibuprofen thrice a day with one injection on alternate days which were two on alternate days earlier (we dont know the which medicine is there in the injection). Now as it is taking so long to get okay with this pain. We are very tensed about it. Can you please suggest what exactly it can be and what we people should do.

Brief Answer:
Meralgia paraesthetica

Detailed Answer:
Hi there

Thanks for the query

If she is having needle prick like sensation in the thigh region, then it could be Meralgia paraesthetica.

This is compression of the nerve at the waist.

Avoid wearing tight pants or belt. Apply hot packs to the affected region. Take Tablet Pregabalin 75mg at night. Avoid activities like stretching or anything that causes the pain. Let her take some rest.

Let her continue Ibuprofen 400mg twice a day after meals and Tablet Rabeprazole twice a day before meals for 5 days.

It would be helpful to point to the area of pain and describe to me or take a photo and upload for clear diagnosis.

I hope I have answered your query.

I will be available to answer your follow up queries.

Regards,

Dr. Aashish Raghu
