@ZipLine-- Gabapentin is great for nerve pain. I have pain due to neuropathy and gabapentin has been a life saver for me.
It does take time for the medication to work though and you might need to increase the dose until it works. I started seeing the effects of gabapentin after a week. I started at a low dose and my doctor increased the dose every month until I had complete pain relief. So it requires some patience to see results, but it's worth it. Ask your doctor about gabapentin and don't increase the dose on your own. Let your doctor handle it.
