Hello,

Welcome and thanks for your query.
Your symptoms are suggestive of a pinched nerve.
You may see a neurologist. The doctor may order xrays and MRI to make the diagnosis and give you the right medicines.
If you are unable to see a neurologist or get the investigations done, you could request your doctor to prescribe you Neurontin which may help you.
Do get back to me if you have more queries.
