Brief Answer:
You need to get serum B12 estimation

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
thanks for reply. After studying you case I reached to this conclusion that you are having low serum B12. I would suggest you following.
1.get your serum B12 estimation
2.If it is low ( range is between 200 to 800 ) then you need to take injection of Methylcobal intramuscular alternate day for ten days.
3.Take Lyrica tablet one daily.
4.Avoid very tight foot wear.
I hope these steps will be helpful for you.Let me know if there is any other followup questions.
thanks
