      Hi Guys,

      I’ve been experiencing constant partial numbness down and across my left quad for the past 3 weeks. I’ve asked a friend and they said its down to my L4/L5 disk.

      Has anyone any advice on this? I don’t experience any pain, I would just like to get this sorted before it gets worse.

      This is a situation where it may be necessary to see a doctor.

      I’m with Kaitlin.  Numbness or tingles that don’t go away are indications of pressure on nerves.  Find a professional and get it sorted before any sort of permanent nerve damage can occur.

      It could either be from your lower back or an entrapment of the Lateral Femoral Cutaneous Nerve which is called Meralgia Paresthetica. It just causes numbness in the thigh and resolves with proper soft tissue treatment to remove entrapment. An Active Release Technique Provider would be helpful.

      Good Luck
