Patient :I get a burning sensation on the outside of my right thigh when I stand too long. The skin over the area feels numb to touch. Over the last couple of days it seems to be spreading to the upper front thigh region and even going towards my groin area. Sometimes I get an intense burning feeling, quite painful. Only thing that helps is if I go to sit down for a while. The numb feeling does not go away.
