Mine was in the front for the most part. It started out with feelings of water running down my leg, and progressed to painful lightning like stabbing. I called it the 100 bees sting.

I had it for years....then Lidoderms came out, and I tried them placed in the upper thigh where the nerve exits the abdomen.
This numbed the nerve and after 2 weeks of doing this... the nerve stopped firing. I get warnings that the remission might end when I expose that area to any heat source--- heating pad, steam room or hot bath tub. But overall I am enjoying my remission.

This link has a diagram of the lateral femoral nerve pathway, to illustrate where to put the Lidoderms.
