I have had pain, burning and tingling in my right thigh (front only) for three years. I have had multiple MRIs and tests, all of which have shown nothing. What could be the problem?
Not knowing what "tests" you have had regarding this pain, burning, and tingling in the thigh, I would say that this is most likely from a condition called Meralgia Paresthetica. An electrodiagnostic test specifically studying the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve usually will help to confirm the diagnosis.
A nerve specialist (neurologist) should be able to help you with this nerve pain.

thank you for getting back to me - as I stated, I have been mri'd from head to foot - they did a nerve conduction study also-all came back ok. A neurologist did tell me that I "may" have meralgia paresthetica" but offered very little help with treatment options. I was seeing a physiatrist who did give me a shot in the groin area after I mentioned what the neurologist suggested. That did not help at all. I have to tell you, I'm very frustrated with seeing doctor after doctor, trying medication one after another and still no one can tell me what the matter is. It's also depressing. I do take cymbalta and vicoden for pain - even that just takes the edge off. Sorry for going on, but as I said, I'm very frustrated and any suggestions you may have would be greatly appreciated.
I am praying for Jesus Christ to send you His healing as I too have been suffering with a right thigh pain and numbness. He said in the Bible, "By Jesus' stripes you were healed!" So no doctors can help, I am going to keep believing Jesus will! I pray in Jesus name for you to receive your healing from Him as well!
