Neurontin is a VERY effective medication for chronic pain in some patients. I would view it as an excellent drug to try in your case. HOWEVER, what your MD apparently neglected to mention is that it can take weeks (or even months) before it starts to work. It needs to totally build up in your system before it even begins to work.
Be patient before you give up on it; it may be just what you need to get relief.

The treatment for a pinched nerve depends on where the nerve is pinched. If, as is likely in your case, the nerve is piched on the way out of the spine, there is no special treatment other than pain relief. Surgery is a last resort.
