Almost 4 yrs. with this and a list of medications a mile long. I've seen 13 doctors and in (Oct. Nov.& Dec.) I had 2 SCS (spinal cord stimulators ) operations. And still in sever pain. I'm looking for information that others have tried that maybe I haven't tried.

My feet feel like I've have peeled back the skin. Air Hurts! I wore flip flops 3 winters. they hurt all the time some more than others. At times they feel like I've rubbed them raw with rough sandpaper. This is hell. I've tried , done and been every where the doctors have suggested. No luck. There has to be something that they're missing.
Have you tried Lyrica> also Amytriptline and doxepin have been recently approved for Neurophty. They are both anti-depressents so may cause drowsiness until you body adapts to it. As for gabapentin the wae originaly intended for seizures. But works on most people for Neurophty. In may case it was totally useless. It was a total waste of money.
Sorry you are going through this pain. I am on gabapentin for nerve damage pain, I have CRPS/RSD. My right foot was so bad I could not touch it at all back in Sept. now I can touch & message my foot cuz of gabapentin. It won't take all the pain away but I can now be more comfortable. Also take pain meds. too. Everyone is different, one med might work for one person but not work for another. Hope you feel better soon.
My heart goes out to you as I know the pain as I also have severe neuropathy. As the other members mentioned that gabapentin or lyrica may help. For me lyrica worked better. I also want to suggest cymbalta and a daily supplement of Alpha Lipoic Acid, the supplement and the antidepressant cymbalta has helped many with nerve pain.
I wish you the best,
