In brief: Is the pain neurop

is your pain neuropathy or is it different.
If it is neuropathy you are at the top dose of gabapentin so may need to switch to Lyrica (pregabalin) . Usually neuropathy is in both legs so if just the fused ankle one needs better explanation than diabetes for the neuropathy. Would have your physician reevaluate the diagnosis and cause of the pain
