A type of pain or numbness that comes from the waist and to the front of the thigh can be meralgia paresthetica which is an entrapment of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve. This often happens when there during pregnancy or obesity. It may even happen with pants that are too tight, especially when you sit for long periods of time.
