the sharp pain
of this nature is most likely related to high levels of uric acid itself. I hope you are put on medication- allopurinol
- for that. After a few days the pain will subside with the medication and good sugar control. Please have minimal non-veg proteins
in your diet to reduce the uric acid level and drink enough water. The other possible reasons include- obesity, and diabetic neuropathy
. Diabetic neuropathy is less possible in your case as it is affecting only one leg of yours.
Due to obesity some people develop mis-alignments of foot bone at their joints and the nerves etc get wrongly trapped in that mess. This possibility you can confirm by seeing a good Orthopedic doctor.
I hope you got your answer. Take care.
