Hello,

The symptoms seem to be related to peripheral neuropathy. The symptoms can be related to diabetes.

I suggest checking the glycemic level for further evaluation. Meanwhile, you can try over the counter option. such as Ibuprofen.

If they will others be effective you should consult your doctor about prescription painkillers such as Gabapentin.

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

Take care
