If you are experiencing symptoms of pain, numbness
, or weakness in your leg, please see your doctor
or a healthcare professional for evaluation so that you may undergo the appropriate testing and treatment if necessary. Meralgia paresthetica is typically a numbness over the lateral thigh due to an injury to the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve, typically through entrapment or compression that often spontaneously resolves with time. However, other more serious conditions can also present with numbness or weakness, including spinal and brain disorders, therefore you should be evaluated by your doctor. In addition, please consult with your healthcare professional prior to starting a workout regimen. Your doctor may provide you with the appropriate nutrition and workout exercises that can help you progress your fitness in an appropriate fashion. Recumbent biking is generally safe if you are physically capable of mounting the device. However, if it has been a long time since you last exercised regularly, you should be evaluated by your doctor to exclude certain risk factors of starting regular exercise such as cardiovascular disease. In addition to exercise, dietary changes can also be of significant help with reducing weight and feeling better. There are multiple ways to alter diet including changing the content of food you eat and measuring how much you, which your doctor or a dietitian
can help with.
