Hi, Welcome to Health care magic forum.
As you describe, it appears to be due to the neuralgia, due to the diabetes, anemia, or some other deficiency.
I advise you to consult a physician for diagnosis and treatment.
I usually prescribe to my patient with such symptoms nuerotropic
injections for 10 consecutive days and then periodically. suppliments of calcium, vitaminD, and pain killers when needed.
Avoid taking potato, other tubers, tomato, egg, chicken, and sea foods.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery. thank you.
