Femoral nerve pain

I think I have femoral nerve pain. I keep getting a burning pain at the top of my thigh. Does anyone else suffer from this? Can anything help? I think its getting worse. Thanks.

I’ve had burning pain at top of thighs, groin area and across my pubic region; neurologist seemed to have heard this many times. For me it was a new symptom and part of a relapse. You may want to let your MS team know about it.
Neurologist suggested increasing the dose of a neuropathic pain killer which helped. It also changed from being an acute pain to more of a muscle ache which I put down to the passage of time, i.e. many weeks.
Some months later I no longer have it, however I have changed my Neurology Centre and am on a drug for more ‘active’ RRMS.
hope you get some relief soon

@pinny I experience burning as well. This is a new symptom that started last July. It was intense for a couple months but now seems to be provoked during relaxation and after a busy day. The burning is in my thigh, face, groin, foot and only on the right side of my body. This new symptom was a loot bag with a relapse…nice parting gift but at least it keeps me warm 😂. This fire is a new experience for me I my 17 year journey…just need to buy me some marshmallows 😋

Oh and I forgot to say be patient…mine was extremely powerful for quite some time but did ease up.
