I have nerve pain in my ankle due to a permanent foot contracture (I have MD). Surgery is not an option due to lung issues. Anyways, I felt sharp stabbing pain along with tingling in my ankle (area around pain is numb) so my doctor prescribed gabapentin 100mg a day along with physical therapy. The pain continued a week later so I had doctor raise dosage - he upped it to 600mg/day. It has been a week but pain is still there. It is hard to tell if pain is less or not. Tylenol or Advil helps, but it doesn't last forever. Would 900mg/day of gabapentin help? Is the jump from 600mg to 900mg enough to be effective? Thanks!
