I have a sharp burning stabbing pain in my right outer thigh . I have had this for over 3 years and the doctor told me it is from my back injury from a car accident about 20 years ago, but the last 2 weeks it has gotten much worse. Sometimes I am unable to walk while this burning stabbing pain is occurring it only last for about 3-5 seconds but continues throughout the day and at night it wakes me up multiple times I can hardly move from side to side does anyone have any ideas what is it or what can I do to find relieve , right now I am on 2 different narcotics 1 6 xs a day and another 1 2 xs a day it helps my back pain but not this pain in my thigh any help would be appreciated
