Numbness on upper thigh

This is kinda weird. The last 2 or 3 weeks I've been experiencing numbness on the front part of my upper right thigh. This happens when I stand or walk for 30mins or so. If I sit down it goes away. Occasionally, my leg will feel kinda sore inside, but I don't have trouble walking. That hip has bother me before too. I'm wondering if I have a nerve that is getting compressed when I stand too long. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

Hello, I cannot really explain why it would immediately go away when you sit down. I work for an orthopaedic and we see this sometimes when a person wears jeans too tight but not only from that (that is just a common reason why people get it). The condition is called Parasthetica Meralgia. If you google that it will give you alot of information. I hope that helps a little.

Thanks for the info. No tight jeans here, but maybe I can figure this out. It doesn't hurt or anything. Just weird.
I just printed out a picture from the Mayo Clinic that shows how the nerve passes thru the hip bone. I've had trouble with that hip before. Maybe the nerve is getting pinched.

Have you had any slips or falls prior to the numb feeling? You would be amazed at how you can have a bulging disc from a fall that causes pinched nerves and the pain is no where near your back.

I fell back in March. But I tripped and fell forward. I actually fell at work. I might go to employee health and ask what they think.

Doesn't matter if you fell forward or backwards. You don't even necessarily have to land in a fall, just a bad stumble and a wrong twist can do damage. I would ask. I'd also schedule an appt with the Dr. Nerve damage can be progressive, and if not corrected early can have permanent effects. The Dr will do some range of motion and strength/muscle control tests, that seem like nothing and know right away. they may order xrays, ultrasound, or mri to verify, and measure any damage.

My mom had this when I was a baby. Turned out she'd sit with her legs crossed then put my fat self on top of her crossed legs LOL. Don't know if you have a little one but it's a thought...
