Meralgia paresthetica

HI I'm getting pain on right side of front thigh skin. I consulted doctor and concluded it might be meralgia paresthetica. I'm yet to do MRI scan for back but doctor prescribed me renerve tablet. pain stated before 2 weeks its very mild pain. it was happening while bending through knee but now I'm feeling little pain while walking too. I'm feeling some altered sensetion on thigh(not numbness). is my treatment going right ? will it I get recovered fully ? any timeframe for recovery ? any exercise should I do?

You have to first start with life style modifications Then check your blood sugar, lipid profile and thyorid levels If there are any abnormalities, they have to be corrected first In most patients, the pain will stop with these steps Surgery is rarely required
