Re: Numb patch, right inner thigh

Well, that's not good.

It seems like the fall or some stress might've severed some of your femoral nerve. Not really sure how that happened... maybe it was being compressed when you bent your leg under your inguinal ligament.

Stress fracture ain't good either.

Numbness you pretty much can't do anything. The nerves SHOULD slowly grow back over time (about 1 mm per month) so basically you're playing a waiting game. Hopefully the nerve(s) weren't shredded too much that they should grow back.

It may be a good idea to see a physical therapist though in the meantime.
