    Hi Jordan,

    I'm so sorry that you're having to put up with this pain. I know EXACTLY how you feel, I've been through it. When my pain was at its worst it really helped me to use ice packs specially at night.

    I wrapped them in a thick towel & put them around my feet. Gabapentin has helped me also.

    I really hope that helps & your feet begin to improve.

    I agree with Gennymac. I have just put the ice pack in the freezer and will shortly have my last Gabapentin dose of the day. Do you know what is causing the pain. If you have not seen a neurologist you should.

      Yes Martin, it is essential to see a Neurologist if you haven't done that already Jordan.

      My leg/foot pain originally started as a result of knee surgery.

      My sister had similar pain following chemotherapy.

    My feet and toes have neuropathy pain for the last 4 years ! The usual pins and knives pain, the burning pain and I feel like I'm walking on hard rocks ! About 4 month ago, I had surgery to decompress the nerves in my right leg foot and toes !   I had about 40 %mpain relief after my surgery, but was short lived as the pain has come back ! I tried the gabepinten but all it did was put on 30 [pounds this last winter !

    I have no idea what to do next to releive my neuropathy pain !?
