Hi doctor,

I am a 30-year-old male. From 12 years of age, I have this pleasurable feeling in my thigh. It feels good and it comes out anywhere. It almost feels orgasmic. I can be standing or sitting and it randomly comes and goes on even without I think about sex. Rubbing it makes me feel better. What is the cause?



Welcome to

First of all, there is no known medical condition presenting with these symptoms. Your feeling is variant from the normal. You can consult a neurologist and he can run tests to know the nerves causing these electrical signals up and down. As your situation does not have a medical consequence, you can consult any neurologist to perform an invasive procedure. As long as it does not bother you, you do not need to have an investigation medically. Although we are humans, we are at the same time and we are unique beings. If you take a collective of ten patients and investigate them from head to toes, you can find abnormalities in every single person. I recommend you just take it as a special power.

The Probable causes:

You have a congenital phenomenon.

Investigations to be done:

nothing is needed.

Differential diagnosis:

You can have a neurological disorder.

Probable diagnosis:

You can have an inborn abnormality of the signaling cascade without clinical significance.

Treatment plan:

nothing is needed.

Preventive measures:

nothing is needed.

Regarding follow up:

Revert me at any time.
