Suggest treatment for nerve pain in the legs

I am having nerve pain in the top of my legs, especially my right leg after standing for a few hours at a time as a cashier for the holidays. In January I am getting an epidural. But I need something in the meantime for the pain. What can I do for the pain.

Hello,
I have gone through your question and understand your concern.
Radiculopathic pain responds to pregabalin, Gabapentin, duloxetine or amitriptyline.
You can start under guidance.
Dose may be gradually increased according to response.
