Thank you for posting your query at
I have noted your symptoms and there is no need to worry.
Symptoms are suggestive of pressure over the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (nerve located in the skin over thigh). This may cause vibration, tingling, burning, pain or numbness in the affected region.
You may benefit from pregabalin capsules.
Condition improves within a few weeks.

Thanks for your reply, I have additional question on this.
1. What is the reason that the affected area becomes unconcious ?
2. Is it anything related to the tissues damaged inside the thigh ?
Over all is there anything to be worried much? Should i go and see any consultant here in Bangalore?

Thank you for getting back.
The pressure on the nerve makes the area unconscious, which I think you mean numb.
The tissue damage is unlikely.
There is no need to worry. You may consult Dr Murali Srinivas Neurologist at Manipal Hospital, Bangalore.
