Leg pain is more common in the outer thigh.
There are two cases of lateral thigh pain, one is lateral femoral cutaneous neuritis, and the other is lateral femoral cutaneous nerve compression syndrome.
Lateral femoral cutaneous neuritis is also called paresthesia femoral pain. The lateral femoral cutaneous nerve is sent from the second to third lumbar nerves, passing through the lateral edge of the psoas muscle, obliquely across the iliac muscle, and along the deep surface of the pelvis through the inguinal ligament, in the iliac Pass the fascia lata to the skin of the thigh 10 cm below the anterior superior spine.
