hi. my right thigh is completely numb on the top half of my leg. I have sharp pains going from my outer hip (bone) to the outside of my knee. What is this? I think it could be a pinched nerve, but I'm not sure. Anyone else feel this way or is it just me? What helped? What can I do to get through tonight. I feel like I'm about ready to cut off my leg! There is pain where the numb part of my leg meets the part that's not numb. I am now feeling sharp pains behind my knee. What' is going on with my damn body?! :( someone please tell me!

Ah yes... the good old Sciatic Nerve. I've had that pinched during pregnancy and it is NO FUN! I wish I could tell you how to fix it, but I can't. I've just had to wait for it to go away. However, it does have to do with your spine... so you could see a chiropractor, and he/she could probably adjust it for you. If you can't afford that, then try some gentle stretching and staying off of your feet for a while. (Preferably lying down, so you are completely off the nerve) Hope this helps!
