Stephanie, my husband has a C5/C6 SCI and has finger pain (feels like a truck ran over his fingers) and burning on his backside (he says it feels like he is sitting on a hot stove). The Neurontin does little for the burning, neither does the pain meds. Have you tried acupuncture? He is just getting into it. It hasn't helped the hand pain much but has helped tone down the bottom pain. His pain doc is also recommending a nerve block, which he thinks will really help the burning pain.
