I was getting such good sleep these past few months after going on the Lyrica,barring bad pain nights but the last week has been rough. Even when I finally got my bed just right still no sleep!! I am still getting the pain relief that the Lyrica was origionaly takin for which was that relentless burning leg and ice cold foot pain I had for months but it seems like most of the other pain that the Lyrica took care of at first is not working any longer. WhenI first started the Lyrica I got almost complete pain relief head to toe. I am talking most of the muscle and joint pain as well as the leg pain and it was wonderful!!
Looks like that party is over now as I have had even more muscle and joint pain these last few weeks then ever before. I pray that the leg and foot pain doesnt return as well because that was the what I called the "last straw pain". It was pain that put me over the edge sanity wise because no matter how much pain meds I took it was uneffected and it hurt so terribly bad. Its funny how with some pains you think that is the worst it can get and if you can just get through the day or night it is happening that things will get better. Then a new pain comes along and rears its ugly head and this time it doesnt go away completey and you know the signs of it and that it is going to be there like clockwork every single afternoon and night and the thought that this
could be for the rest of your life makes the thought of each coming day unbareable. That was the leg and foot pain I had. So ya,I'm afraid right now.
I guess all I can do is pray for the best outcome and that it will stay gone,cause as much as I have overdone it and thrown myself into flares repeatedly at least I knew that was my fault and it was something I could control by slowing down. I couldnt control the other pain and that makes you feel so darn helpless and terrified. I sure do miss the sleep though lol I am getting downright loopy lately.specially when I have things to do for the day like today. I am meeting with my daughter and grandkids for the day and I am soooooo tired right now. It's like coffee don't fail me now =O there is that darn wierd font again!!! I dont know what it is I do but I must hit something then all the sudden the font changes. At least I know it's not just me. I have seen it happen to several other members as well. OK got to go get in the shower. Everyone have a great day with little pain and high spirits!!
