I don't want to scare you, but you might want to call your doctor and have it checked out. He/she might have the answer you are looking for. We are not doctors here. It could be a multitude of things.

Google "Meralgia paresthetica" and see if that sounds like what you have. I have it, and it was caused by a fall that also broke my wrist.
