Hello Carrie , I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.When was the injury?Do you have swelling in the thigh?
10 days ago, and yes there was swelling and there still is swelling
Hi Carrie,The swelling presses on the nerve which is more pronounced when you stand up, which causes the tingling. Once the swelling decreases significantly (internal swelling may take up to 3 weeks), the tingling would stop. Ice compresses, Ibuprofen and avoiding exertion (prolonged standing or walking) would help in early resolution.Please feel free for your follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
