I was diagnosed 7 years ago as having a non-tramtic neuroma in my calf. Over the years it has become extremely painful. I have episodic burning nerve pain. Have taken Lyrica and am currently on Neurontin. My Pain Dr has recommended that I have the nerve burned. Is anyone familiar with this procedure. I am so tired. The pain is unbearable. However I am familiar with this pain and do not want a procedure that could potentially make the pain worse. I have maxed out on the allowable effective dose of Neurontin. Lyrica is not an option as I could not handle the side effects. Was on it a year and couldnt wait to get off. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!!!
