Burning in left thigh above knee

04/21/2008

Question:

i seem to be experiencing a burning sensation in my thigh above the knee area. I noticed it last week when I was standing for a long period of time but now it seems to happen at other times of the day. Any idea what the cause is?

Answer:

Burning type sensations are typical of nerve pain. Nerve pain can be a tricky thing so I would say that it is time for you to see your family physician for further evaluation.

Good luck.
