Hi, I am 3 1/2 weeks out from surgery and am having what I think is nerve pain. The top of my big toe is numb, and further up my foot above the big toe is an area of burning/stabbing pain. I can live with it during the day, but at night it is keeping me from sleeping, and that is making my poor angelic husband about to throw me out;). The numbness doesn't bother me that much, but I am ready for the pain to go away. All my other pain (heel, etc.) has really settled down to nearly nothing.

My questions: Does this sound like nerve pain? Do others have experience with this? If so, how long does it take to settle down and go away? I read that Lyrica might be good for nerve pain, but I am scared to ask my doc for it for fear of side effects.

Thanks for any experience/advice you can offer!
