Numb,itch, and burning sensation on thigh
I'm a 53 yr. old female and for the last couple of months, an area of my left thigh has been getting numb, itching, and burning sensation. It occurs several times a day, walking, sitting or in bed. Other than high blood pressure, which I take medication for, I'm pretty healthy. The only Rx I take are Avapro 150mg, Hydrochlorot 12.5mg, and Atenolol 25mg.
What could be causing it?

My internist sent me for an MRI which revealed mild to advanced arthristis of the lumbar spine.  I am not in physical therapy but wonder if it will help me.

What else have you done for your problem?
