Is anyone trying this for their Fibro?
 
I have not been "mapped" yet. Looking for someone who can do it properly.
 
Does anyone experience the "sunburned" feeling skin (my lower back is where mine is began a couple of weeks ago)? If so, what do you do for relief?
 
I'll go back to lurking for now......
 
Take good care everybody.
 
Soft hugs~

Hello Sandra!

I just wanted to welcome you to the forum!! 

I don't take lyrica and I'm really happy with my meds as they are right now.  I had a friend that used Lyrica and had problems with it.  So, I'm not that interested in it.

There are some others on the forum that take it and perhaps they can answer your questions.

Good luck in your quest, be sure to check out the 2nd thread on the Fibromyalgia Forum called Fibro 101, there's lots of answers and information there.

Have a good day!!

Thanks for responding, Patti. I still would like to know what users of the Rx have to say.

Patti, does Ultram REALLY help with the pain?

Hi Sandra,

I don't take lyrica either, but I did want to welcome you to the forum.

This is a wonderful place to come for advice. And support.

I hope that somebody who takes lyrica comes on soon to answer your questions. And as was mentioned above, check out fibro101. It is a very informative thread.

Hugs, Karen

Sandra, search for past posts on Lyrica. I have posted at length 2 or 3 times. It should help you. Diane

Hi again Sandra,

The Ultram aka Tramadol has helped a lot.. but I can also take it with Ibuprofen or Tylenol if I'm in extreme pain and I've been somewhat pleased.  So far I'm pretty happy with my meds.  I was in a major flare when I started them and haven't had another since... BUT, I just started on these meds January.. so let's see how things are going a year from now.

Take care,


Patti

I am REALLY new to this location. I am that ignorant of its use. The search button doesn't take me to new locations. Would someone please teach me how to navigate? Had I known I would not have dropped this particlar topic in here to mess up this particular forum. Forgive me.

Thanks for all who have replied. Much appreciated.

Sandra

I have been taking Lyrica for a couple of months, and it has helped a great deal. I did experience drowsiness at first, but I only take it at night where alot of people take it 2 or 3 times a day, but I wanted to stay at a low dose cause I'm scared of the weight gain side effect. But please be careful, I just found out that Lyrica messes with your eyes, and I had to get my glasses prescription doubled, when I just had an exam 4 months ago. So within 2 month, my eye sight has gotten bad, I didnt know that hte Lyrica did that, but I made an appointment for another eye exam, and she told me that the Lyrica was the reason why, so it's been making me debate on whether taking Lyrica is worth my eyesight, cause I cant afford eye exams and lenses every couple of months, so I have decided to get these new glasses and see if my eyes get owrse again, if it does then I will stop taking the Lyrica. Also I take Lyrica for fibro but really started on it for migraine control cause all the other meds I tried for migraine prevention wasnt working. So basically the Lyrica is doing 2 things for me, kinda like how Cymbalta is helping my depression, anxiety/panic attacks, migraine prevention, and fibro. And they have defiently been working so far.
