Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out. You might be suffering from meralgia paresthetica - this occurs when the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve of the thigh becomes irritated.
This condition is commonly seen during pregnancy, in people wearing tight clothes, or in patients suffering from diabetes. It is important to know that in this the numbness occurs on the lateral aspect of the thigh. Please do consult a neurologist for a detailed evaluation of the same. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
