In brief: No

Need an emg/ncv test to determine if the toes are affected by the disc issue neurontin is usually rxed for neuropathic local pain.

In brief: Give it time

If you have burning pain in the toes Gabapentin (neurontin) is a good medication to try.
The dose might need to be increased. Talk with you doctor about it.
