I had surgery on my left foot 4 days ago to remove screws from my heel, untangle some nerves, clean up scar tissue and lengthen my Achilles. I went home with a nerve block but once it wore off I started to have a terrible burning pain and pins/needles across the bottom of my foot and toes. The top of my foot is also numb. I'm taking percocet and it helps some
but I can't stand this constant burning. I tried icing it, elevating it, loosening the splint and even shoving ice in the splint under my toes. Nothing is helping and I haven't been able
To sleep for over 2 days. The surgeon said it was my Nerves waking up but I didn't have this kind of pain after my original surgery when I broke it.
The burning is constant. If anyone knows of any home remedy to relieve nerve pain or has ever had this, PLEASE,PLEASE HELP! I'm desperate!

Hi! I am sorry you are feeling so bad after your surgery. If they untangled your nerves in your foot, the nerves could be very sensitive and are trying to start working again. As far as relieving that pain, I would see if the doctor can give you something for the nerve pain . There are other non-addictive medications out there to help you like Neurontin and all. I hope you feel better.

Scared1, call your doc TODAY. Explain the severe pain you're in. Ask him for a prescription for neurontin aka gabapentin. This is a drug that was invented as an antiseizure med but it's very useful for nerve pain, and it sounds like that's what you're having. Also take ibuprofen with food, as its anti inflammatory actions may help in combination with the percocet and hopefully a neurontin script.
Good Luck!

I think it would be better if you just visit your doctor as soon as possible before the situation gets out of hand.
