Upper leg nerve pain: Meralgia Paraesthetica
I’ve had this now for a while on both legs. The symptoms are getting worse now. It is NOT the iliotibial band issue. This can lead to SIGNIFICANT DISABILITY if not treated quickly. THIS CAN GET REALLY BAD.
THIS IS CURABLE
A 2013 review in the International Journal of Sports Therapy suggests that stretching and strengthening exercises for the pelvis, hip, and core, as part of a comprehensive treatment plan, may be effective in relieving pain and symptoms of meralgia paresthetica. [Source]
Bridging is one exercise, which does that. It comprises of lying flat on the floor and lifting your hips up, at the same time tightening the gluteal muscles.
Hip extensions can also be done. First lie on your belly and lift your leg up while tightening the gluteals.
Standing hip abduction can be done by standing straight and slowly lifting each leg to one side while keeping the knee extended. These exercises should not cause pain in the thigh.
