Back Problems board

Sorry to hear of your pain. I had the same but on L4-L5 in June of 2002, and due to extremely inflamed nerves it took another 10 months before I no longer had the pain. If you are not already taking this med, call your doctor and explain what is going on and ask if he/she thinks Lyrica might help. I was put on this last year when I sustained some nerve damage in my neck causing burning from my neck to toes on left side. It really helped to block the pain and I was eventually able to go off of it after a while. I wish I had had this med when I had my back surgery! Good luck!
