Hello Charlottejo. Welcome to the forum. I understand your pain. As per your symptoms it is understood that
you have some problem with your peripheral nerves also called Peripheral neuropathy. It can be due to the
compression of the nerve or other reasons like due to diabetes, deposition disease like amyloidosis and
Fabry,s disease, lepromatous leprosy. Small fibre neuropathies often present with cutting pain, electric shock
like sensations , tingling and pins and needles. So I will advise you to visit a neurologist soon. As for the
treatment, we can use drugs like tricyclic antidepressants and carbamazepine but before that I would advise
you to see your neurologist. Thank you.
