Burning in left thigh above knee



i seem to be experiencing a burning sensation in my thigh above the knee area. I noticed it last week when I was standing for a long period of time but now it seems to happen at other times of the day. Any idea what the cause is?


Burning type sensations are typical of nerve pain. Nerve pain can be a tricky thing so I would say that it is time for you to see your family physician for further evaluation.

Good luck.
