Meralgia Paresthetica

MeeMee has Meralgia Paresthetica, and has been resting more the past week. Woke up on Tuesday morning with numb skin on right outer thigh. Feeling less numb after the Chiropractor cracked MeeMee’s spine to unpinch the nerve, but the numbness is not all gone.

MeeMee doesn’t wear tight clothing, isn’t overweight, doesn’t stand for long hours…. and is puzzled how it happened.

Meralgia paresthetica occurs when the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve — a nerve that supplies sensation to the surface of your outer thigh — becomes compressed, or “pinched.”
