you are suffering from Meralgia paresthetica
Meralgia paresthetica is a condition that can cause burning pain over the front and outside of the thigh. There is a nerve that passes just over the brim of the pelvis and down the outside of the thigh. This nerve, called the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve, supplies the brain with information about sensation over the front and outside of the thigh.
the treatment solely depends on the causative factor.
Weight reduction is not a probelm. just avoid wearing tight pants,tight belts,etc.
If pain persists, a cortisone injection will help you.
Surgery is rarely done for this condition.
I hope your query is solve.
You are free to ask me more questions,
Get off the Vicodin. That will not relieve the pain and is an improper medication. Vicodin is plan stupid.
When you have a "pinched nerve", the appropriate pharmacological intervention involves anti-inflammatories, and in some cases muscle relaxants. Motrin or Ibuprufin should have been prescribed before Vicodin. The store-dose is 200 mg. That is not enough. The hospital dose is 800 mg, no more than twice a day.
You have to lose weight. I'm not sure what to tell you about that.
Thigh pain is often not a pinched nerve in the thigh, but a pinched nerve in the lumbar region of the spine.
There are exercises and protocols for that. You need an MRI of the lower spine.
