Thank you for your query.

At your age the pain that you describe needs to be investigated. You mentioned that you have consulted a number of doctors. If you can share the investigations ordered by them and the reports then it would help me in guiding you further. In case you have not consulted a neurologist then it would be advisable to consult one and get nerve condution study done.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction. Please feel free to share the reports through the feature available on the site so that you can be guided further.

Wishing you all the best..
