im actually from the BP and crohn's board but i have a question for the experts here. my psych put me on lyrica on top of my current anxiety med to help but all of a sudden i woke up with joint pain in my elbows. could it be attributed to the lyrica or do you think i was just sleeping funny?

thank you for taking the time to answer my question.

Why did your psych put you on Lyrica? Hmm...I havent heard of it causing joint pain...I really couldnt tell the difference anyways since I have joint pain. So... But, I have never heard of anyone having joint pain from Lyrica but hopefully someone else can help out more than I have! Take Care!

I get no joint pain with my Lyrica and in fact it helps with joint pain for me. I am on 600mg a day.
