54 yr old, 3 year breast cancer survivor, 20 lbs overweight, nerve tingling/cramping in upper left thigh near groin, not after exercise, sometimes just changing position helps. What could this possibily be?

Hi anonymous,

Thank you for your question and congrats on being a survivor. The tingling that you are referring to usually means that you have some sort of nerve condition. Does it feel like 'pins and needles'? If it does, this condition may also lead to numbness.

Have you sought physicians attention? The reason why I ask...there could be other underlying reasons also that should be treated from a physician. Nerve symptoms like tingling or numbness can also arise from serious illnesses such as multiple sclerosis or another spinal disorder or nerve disorder. You should certainly seek assistance from your physician as the condition may not improve by itself. I hope this helps.
