Need help!!

Okay so my story is a bit unusual.. here goes. I have been having ongoing leg and feet cramps/spasms for the past year and a half. This all stemmed from me wearing heavy metal combat boots the go about 3 inches past my ankle. The boots are " gothic" and were 5lbs each. I wore them for a day for a long period of time. After that day, I have had cramps and spasms while I am on my feet for a long time. I work as a food runner and cannot work as one for the time being because my cramps get so bad. It starts as a slight twitch in my toes and after walking for a little while the twitches get aggressive and make my toes curl down. After a little bit longer if I continue to surpass the pain, I am forced to walk on the side of my foot because it spasms so bad that my foot literally turns sideways. If I sit down the spasms subside, but when I start walking on it again it comes back. I had minor relief using advil but it still continues. I HAVE SEEN NUMEROUS OF DOCTORS: Orthopedic, Rheumatologist, Sports Medicine Doctor, Neurologist, Physical Therapists, etc etc. The tests that I had done that all came back negative were: Blood Tests, EMG, MRI of calf, MRI of Brain, Compartment Pressure Test, doppler to check for intermittent claudication (even though I am 20 years old!) I am at my wits end, and I can't lead a normal life. Can anyone suggest anything?? I am going back to a neurologist to see if there are any damaged nerves in my leg, regardless of the EMG coming back negative. Maybe they missed it? PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME OR SUGGEST SOMETHING!!! I can't take this anymore, I am suffering and falling into a deeper depression everyday. My electrolyte count is normal as well it showed it in the blood tests.
