Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

Since you are sure it can't be those two, it still seems like a problem with a nerve is what's going on, especially with those shooting pains. Are you feeling any numbness at all?

You will need to get this checked into by a doctor - please make an appointment. Unchecked damage like this can lead to further problems down the line.

Also, have you had any kind of recent injury or incident when walking, climbing stairs or exercising?
