Default UPDATE on my MP cure

I posted the following many months ago. Just want to let you know I am now virtually 100% sure that my sleeping position caused my MP. It's hard to change your natural sleep position, but I've been working hard at it with enormous success

I just wanted to let all you MP sufferers know that this is ONE POSSIBLE CAUSE, probably of many. But if this happens to be the cause of your MP, you can solve it just by changing sleep position. It's been close to a year now, and my MP is 99% gone. Once in awhile I get little reminders that it's not 100%. But I was at my wit's end with it before this, and now I'm doing great

I figure if just one person can benefit from this posting, it's certainly worth my effort. Good luck to all! Here's my original posting:

I have suffered from Meralgia Parasethica for many years. The cause of my MP has always been a mystery - until now.
In the past couple of months, my symptoms started easing up considerably, and in the past 2-3 weeks they have disappeared, hopefully permanently! I have been mystified as to what's changed. But I just realized the answer and I'd like to share it with others. I'm quite sure this must apply to some other people who are suffering from MP.
My natural sleep position is on my side, with my upper leg hanging over my lower leg and knee touching the bed. I never thought twice about that until recently, when I've been working on my body alignment (for other reasons). Since June, I've been forcing myself to sleep on my side with my knees together instead. I'm more and more convinced this is what's made the difference.
I can't believe no doctor has ever asked me about my sleep position. But it's logical that this position can easily compress the Lateral Femoral Cutaneous nerve, thus causing MP.
If you sleep on your side, please consider this. I'm more convinced every day that this was the cause, and cure, for my MP! Good luck to all - I sure hope this will help some of you

Thx for posting this. I've apparently have mp and I'm certain it started from constantly being forced to sleep on my back after breaking my collar bone. After about 3wks it started tingling and one night my frontside thigh was burning. Sleeping with pillows high pillows under my knee helped but the problem has gotten worse but not as painful. Worse as in numb thigh and some stabbing explosions in my thigh. Still bare able though but my numb spot gets itchy and can't scratch it and it actually gets sore deep inside if I scratch. Anyway I was happy to read this. After 10 was I can now sleep on my side a little bit so your post gives me hope. I'm going to try ur position to c if we have some common structural issues.
