07 Jun 2015 It took some time to adjust the medication. The initial dose was too high for me. I was crying, upset and had not motivation to be active. After the dose was lowered, my happiness returned but some of the pain as returned too.

25 Jan 2014 I had a disectomy for a prolapsed disc, 8 weeks ago, but left with scar tissue that is still there. The surgeon is going to review in another 8 weeks, but I have to go back to work after being off for 5 months. I want to take something that will help me get through the working day without felling like I am hallucinating, and wobling about. I also want to get a good sleep which I am not doing on the Lyrica

05 Dec 2012 Lyrica reduced the pain associated with my anklosing spondylytis when other therapies had failed. I had tingling, numbness, pain, and very limited movement in my arms and legs from A.S. after developing 6 moderate sized bone spurs on my cervical spine. It was severely limiting my ability to have any sort of life. I have tried almost every form of pain killer from OTC to narcotics with very limited effects. Lyrica works differently and I find that I can be RELATIVELY pain free. It does not totally eliminate the pain but what it does is make it bearable so that I can function. I could take more of it according to my doctor but I am more comfortable taking the lowest possible dose. I have noticed that I have no more tingling, very little numbness, and a greatly expanded range of motion without pain. I highly recommend this drug! Thanks www.all-generic-drugs.com
