Hi. Welcome to "Ask A Doctor" service. My name is Dr. Rahman, I have read your question and here is my advice.

At the moment, you can take certain drugs that may control the pain, these include like Gabapentin, Pregabalin. I would also advise you to take some B complex and vitamin D.

I hope I have answered your question. I will be glad to answer any further question about this.
