Nutrition deficiency/Nerve issues/Pain?

About 3 months ago I thought I developed what was an overuse injury to my inner ankle/foot from exercise. I stopped the exercise but it didn't get better and so after a week then of being in bed with extreme pain I went to the orthopedic who put me in air cast and did bone scans/xrays that showed nothing. I was the refered to a neuro who did mri of brain/spine,doppler,emg all showed nothing.I had bloodwork which did show high liver enzymes which is most of my life and low white blood count but no one was concerned with that being an issue. Mean while months are passing the pain is worse and bed ridden. On a good day a few errands. I also went to the foot ankle specialist who thought it was tarsal tunnel I got 2 nerve block shots. I was started on lyrica,then to cymbalta,now to elavil. My pain is unbarable and gets worse each day as I spend more time laying even sitting hurts. This is through vicadin. Now I was refered back to the ortho who sending me for another mri onTues of my foot/ankle which the other was of brain/spine. I'm suppose to hear from a pain clinc today. I also sent my info to the Denver clininc who said he doesn't deal with my issue.I had for 12 years severe anorexia and was hospitilized many times. This past year I have become the healthiest I have been weight and behavior wise .All the docs are aware of the past . I'm wondering if its damage from the past now showing like a deficiency though none of the huge team of doc has brought that up. Or could it be something in my diet that is building up now and causing issues?I have ibs-c but always its been to the extreme sometimes had to stay in from the cramping,bloating,nausea.I also drink so much like non stop but the bloodwork like I said just showed high liver enzymes and low blood count. I have low blood pressure too. I'm loosing my mind and the only thing all the meds and docs have done so far has made things worse. My pain is the inner ankle/foot. I sometimes have tingling and knife pains in the bottom of foot. Around the ankle feels like no circulation sometimes with small swelling. It also goes up to my calf where its tight. The inner ankle bone to even touch hurts and same with the foot/toes.I'm really worried. I'm 28 so not old. If I can help you all in any way let me know. I thank you regardles for your support. This is so lonely and confusing.
