welcome to

Considering your symptoms, it can be due to compression of lateral femoral nerve.

It can cause pain and further numbness in thigh region.

The second possibility , considering your symptoms is possible Blood clot .

As a Physician, my advice is that you should not ignore these symptoms.

To evaluate the cause fro your symptoms, you should see doctor.

Test will be done, and accordingly management will be advised.
