What are the symptoms of meralgia paresthetica?

I might have Meralgia Paraesthetica. I pretty much have every single symptom of it. Burning and pain in the thigh and such. I am 25 and have been maturbating alot. Some years back, i did so by lying in my bed with legs crossed over, (lile you do when you meditated) and one day the hip just snapped. I didnt think much of it, but later on got numbess feeling in the leg and knee. Now 2 years later, i cant maturbate witthout that position, cause it kinda open up for the sensation. I can keep at it all day if my legs are in line, but the second i cross em ( and maybe relief something in the hip area) i get the sensation back in. Its like something is blocked in there. Is it possible that Meralgia Paraesthetica can block the inguinal nerve, or somewhat other nerves, that is respossible for the penile sensivity?

Hello,

Cannot say in your particular case but you are stretching a point. The nerves to the thigh and penis are separate and meralgia paresthetica does not affect the penis in general.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
