I have nerve pain in my legs..diabetic neuropathy. Feels like bugs are biteng my lower legs and feet, lots of burning, stinging, overall VERY uncomfortable. Lyrica 300 mgs. a day completely eliminates this pain. I've been on both neurontin and Lyrica and i much prefer Lyrica, but that's just me, if it ain't broke don't fix it..neurontin is a good med as well.
