Hello. Thank you for your message.

Pressure on the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve, which supplies sensation to your upper thigh, might cause symptoms of meralgia paresthetica:
-Tingling and numbness in the outer (lateral) part of your thigh. Burning pain on the surface of the outer part of your thigh.
-Burning pain on the surface of the outer part of your thigh. These symptoms commonly occur on one side of your body and might intensify after walking or standing.

We cannot know if this is what is causing your discomfort. See your doctor for an evaluation.
