Tingly feeling in my right thigh only when lying down
I get a tingly feeling in the front of my left thigh only when lying down. My leg does not fall asleep or go numb. It is just a mild tingly feeling. It is not painful whatsoever but more of a nuisance. Any suggestions on what may be causing this? As soon as I stand up it is fine. I am slightly concerned that it might be something bigger but not sure. Is a neurologist the best specialist to see? Would my internist be able to diagnose the issue.
I have read that pain in the lumbar might be pinching nerves in the thigh but my back is fine.
