Feet pain

I'm 17 years old, I don't take any medicine, but since January both my legs hurt. It was like being electrocuted. I went to a doctor for it, but the doctor said, it's normal, and gave me some medicine.
But the doctor said to do a blood test. After that, I took the blood test and gave the report to the doctor, the doctor said that the report is normal & don't worry, there is no need to be careful. But my legs still hurt like electricity. The pain is worse when I am in bed. How to get rid of that pain?

What you’re describing sounds like nerve pain- so it’s not unusual that nothing showed up in the blood work. Maybe see a podiatrist or an orthopedic doctor who is more familiar with issues with nerves and leg/foot pain.

Gosh, sorry to hear that. So, Sometimes this can be neurological as in something is going on with the nerves. Does your lower back hurt at all? Peripheral neuropathy is one type of pain like this. A lot of times it is associated with diabetes. But you are SO young. I think your parents should continue to purse answers. Does stretching relieve it at all?
