Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
such transient pains shooting ones localised without any trauma or no history of suffering from diabetes are usually very self limiting .
if self limiting they should setlle down in a weeks time and will not increase in severity or duration .
if patterni is reducing and lower intensity and goes of in a weeks time no need of medical evaluation but if intensity duration of pain seems to be increasing need to meet a orthopaedic surgeon and if no local pathology then a neurologist.
