Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Regarding your concern, I would explain that your symptoms could be related to a pinched nerve or a bone disorder (inflammation, osteoporosis, etc.). I recommend performing a leg X ray study and blood electrolytes coupled with vitamin D plasma levels for possible deficiency. If these tests result normal, I would recommend starting Amitriptyline or Pregabalin for the pain.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
