Neuropathic pain

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for the query

The tingling and occasional pain sensation you are describing is typical of a neuropathy ( nerve injury). It might have occurred due to a trivial trauma or a viral infection. In either ways it should subside within 4 to 6 weeks, I would like to add here that I am assuming you are not a diabetic since you XXXXXXX mentioned it in your medical history..
Tab Pregabalin taken at night time helps reduce these types of tingling and pain sensations, please approach your physician for a prescription

I hope I was of help, please get back to me if you have any further queries
