I am experiencing skin numbness in my upper right thigh and pelvic region

I am experiencing skin numbness in my upper right thigh into the pelvic region. I have had it for a week now and it started when I was shaving that area. There is no pain and no other symptoms. It does not to feel in the muscle but just the skin. It is not a large area either.

Neurologist 's  Response
Hi,

I understand your concern and would explain that your symptoms could be related to a nerve compression. I think your symptoms will resolve spontaneously in the next days. But, if this does not occur, I would recommend performing a nerve conduction study to examine the nerves of the limbs.

Hope to have been helpful. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Kind regards,
Dr. Aida
