Patient Comments: Pain Management - Neuropathic Pain

Describe your neuropathic pain, including associated symptoms.

Comment from: 55-64 Male (Patient) Published: December 05

I have numbness in the feet and legs; slow response in left leg and hot burning of both thighs with the left being the worse. I have muscle cramps under the rib cage wall below T6 which is where a tumor was removed from the spinal cord. Pain builds to the point of not being able to focus on anything but the pain (8-10 range), I can't take Neurontin.
