Brief Answer:
Methylcobalamine and gabapentin should help

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Your nerve damage could be associated with deficiency of Vitamin B12 could also give rise to such a presentation. Taking methylcobalamine (Vitamin B12) 1500 mcg supplement per day for at least a couple of weeks should help in improving the situation. Taking Gabapentin could help in reducing the pain.

Let me know if I could help further.
