Rest and NSAIDS: as ibuprofen, if not contraindicated, besides weight reduction, if no improvement, or getting worse, see your doctor, best wishes

Could be: But you need further evaluation. Nervous conduction studies can be performed to see edict if any nerve is involved. Go back to you doctor for more evaluation. Treatment options come after the diagnosis. So get your accurate diagnosis first
