I have something that has been bugging me for 2 to 3 years now. There is this large area on the outside of my left thigh that is numb. It is as wide as my hand and goes from about 2 inches below my hip to just above my knee. It is aggravated by standing and walking for long periods of time and releived by rest (sort of). It tingles at times and from time to time it itches like crazy around the edge of the area. I'm just wondering if it could be neuropathy or possibly a pinched nerve. I'm just trying to get some ideas before I actually tell my doctor. I've been a type 2 for 10 years now. I also have diabetic retinopathy which I will be having lasar surgery for tomorrow. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
