Does Neurontin help with stabbing low back pain? I am having to work 12 hours a day 7 days a week and im about to crash and burn over the pain just trying to walk around at work. My good old surgeon said I didn't need anything but advil... yea doc that works great, thanks for the help.

I thought some of you may have had some success with this medicine and stabbing pain. I tried Cymbalta from my primary doc but I had so many side effects I could not take it.


  • It is really hard to say whether or not Neurontin would help with your pain. The only real way to know, is if you try it. Neurontin works well for nerve related pain, but not for mechanical pain. Normally low back pain is mechanically generated, however the fact that it is a stabbing type pain could suggest it is nerve related. So it goes back to "you won't know until you try".

    I hope you find something to provide you some relief.
