Hi,

It could be a neuropathic pain associated with nerve impingement.
As of now you can take drugs like gabapentin for pain relief.
In severe cases steroid injection to the spine will be required.

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

Regards,
Dr. Shinas Hussain, General & Family Physician
