Re: Nerve Pain And Burning Leg Sensation

I can only tell you from my experience, that I have not found anything to help. I take the Neurontin and get 100% relief from it and have been taking it for 2 years now. I too had the lami. when I was fused, but I had permanent nerve damage, since I went too long before having the surgery. The Neurosurgeon told me, prior to the surgery, that depending on how long I had gone with the sciatica nerve being pinched, I may end up with permanent damage. I just recently forgot to fill my script in time and went severaly days w/o it and after a couple of days, the burning pain from to[ of leg to the feet came back with vengance. So, I know that w/ the med, I feel nothing, but w/o it I have the same pain, but wth a worse intensity.

I wish you all the best and if you learn anything, please post it.
