Numbness of left thigh

Postby SeaHorse1 » Mon Nov 11, 2013 4:58 pm

Hi does anyone else get numbness of their outer thigh/leg, My left thigh feels numb - a bit lke your face feels after a trip to the dentist. It has been like this for 3-4 days now. I also have a pain in my left groin, it is worse when sitting on an upright chair, eases a bit when I apply heat or lay down. My leg also fels a bit weak a lot of the time. Is this part of fibro?

I have the same problem but in my right thigh, after consulting my rheumatologist, it was found to be the one nerve that goes across the thigh rather than up and down it(forgotten the name for it), it was down to my gabapentin but after time I git used to it and left it alone

Hi I too have numbness in my left thigh, had it for a few years now, had injections in it but didnt do anything, I'm on gabapentin too does gabapentin make it worse? Also been called in for atsos medical, been really poorly since the letter arrived, do you think it's the stress of the impending medical that makes fibro worse?
