Thigh and body numbness in Sjogrens?

Q:  Today I was doing some shopping which is not something I get to do very often. I noticed that my left leg felt numb (my outer thigh ) what would cause
something like that ?  It is not numb now.... I have primary sjogrens if that
helps... also I had my purse strap across my chest like one would do a messenger bag....I have had am emg and a nerve conduction study both were normal... I have  been having burning sensations all over my body and numbness in spots....

A:  May be neuralgia paresthetica (meralgia paresthetica), involving the pure sensory lateral femoral cutaneous nerve. This nerve originates in the lumbar spine and travels around the pelvis, behind the inguinal ligament to the thigh. The nerve may be compressed in the groin area by tight jeans,(it has been named the Calvin Klien Sndrome), by tight underwear, sitting, and/or adipose (fat) tissue. Perhaps hip hugging jeans and belts could compress the nerve iliac spine (pelvic bone). Result is numbness, burning, tingling of the lateral thigh (sometimes groin,  buttocks, rib cage). Sometimes the area is hypersensitive to light touch or to heat (warm shower causes "burning"). The fact that the symptom resolved does support the compressive possibility.

No reports of NP and Sjs were found (Pub Med, MD Consult, Up-to-Date, Google searches). However, there is reference to NP being associated with diabetes and thyroid disease.

It is theorectically possible that having Primary Sjs, which is commonly associated with peripheral neuropathies, could increase the risk of developing NP in addition to other neuropathies. The fact that you describe other neuropathic syptoms (burning and numbness) in other areas possibly could increase the risk of symptoms from a nerve compression; however we are not aware of published data to support/dispute this).

Wikipedia Encyclopedia has a good description of NP/meralgia paraesthetica.

  • vasculitis symptoms says:

    Such dedicated vaccine takers here, as if it's going to save them. Maybe the placebo effect will help them. The crux of the issue is the refusal to get healthy and instead take a shot/pill instead. Assuming the vaccine works, it will backfire eventually and you will be taken down by something, because your immune system learns to be weak and never has to do the job. And the resistance is only temporary. It will come back to get you later!The other approach I advocate is getting your system strong so you can survive easily, not even getting sick. This requires the basics, optimal vitamin D levels of 80, not 15 like most have. Then you need sleep and exercise, food without pesticide poisons that weaken the immune system, no crappy sweetners like corn syrup, minimal sugar, etc. THen there are various proven herbal antivirals like elderberry.
