Skin on thigh unbearable pain to sleep or touch
Expert:  DR.EHTISHAM replied 5 months ago.

Ok thanks for the information

Pain in your thigh can be due to nerve impingement which may be due to trauma .

Another possibility is that of a muscle injury leading to such excruciating pain and even at time a blood filled collection after trauma (hematoma) can be painful.If the pain is not settling i would suggest a visit to your doctor for evaluation. If it turn out to be some nerve impingement ppain then it can further be investigated by an MRI. For relief of neuropathic pain drugs like gabapentin or carbamezipine might be helpful.

Good Luck

to sit my skin aches
Expert:  DR.EHTISHAM replied 5 months ago.

Yes a localized trauma to thigh muscle can lead to local ache and also it get worse on applying pressure over that area. Usually the nerve pain doesn,t give rise to local tenderness as it is a deep gnawing sort of pain.Nerve pain usually have a sharp shooting kind of character.

I am not feeling back pain only the pain I have mentioned can it still be nerve pain
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Could a disc bring this on without back pain . Can the pain be localised in that area without back pain
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
It's actually not the skin that hurts as advised . It's inside excruciating pain in thigh like injured muscle pain
Expert:  DR.EHTISHAM replied 5 months ago.

Although nerve pain can give such symptoms without hurting the back but the tenderness you have mentioned most likely indicate a muscle injury. It is possible that you might have injured your thigh at the same time when your back was injured and it went unnoticed and now it is giving such pain .Bruised muscle or even a collection of blood or secretions in the thigh can give rise to such symptoms
