Hi,

The possibilities are a neuropathic pain due to the weakness of nerves due to underlying conditions like diabetes and peripheral vascular disease due to a poor blood supply.

As of now, you can take analgesics like Tramadol or Diclofenac for pain relief.

If symptoms persist consult a physician and plan for a Doppler to assess blood flow and do a nerve conduction study also.

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

Regards,
