Hello,

I have studied your case.
Due to compression of this nerve root there is pain in your thigh.

I will advise you to do MRI spine as nerve compression in spine can lead to pain in and around thigh.
For these symptoms analgesic and neurotropic medication can be started.
Till time you can consult physiotherapist for help.
Physiotherapy like ultrasound and interferential therapy will give quick relief.
I will advise to check your vit B12 and vit D3 level.

These symptoms could be due to vascular occlusion around your hip and thigh.
Colour Doppler may help in diagnosis.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Wishing you good health.

Take care.
