I have nerve damage L4, L5, T9-T11.  I've had bi-lateral medial branch blocks as well as RATA, Thermal Ablation.  Finally after 2 years of being in pain every single day, restless painful nights of trying to sleep I've been put on Lyrica 50mg 3x a day.  I noticed right away a severe lack of concentration...much like ADD.  If I don't do what is on my mind right that minute I forget.  Also, in the last few days I've had pain under my right rib cage, this is the liver/gall bladder area.  I'm wondering if it has to do with Lyrica.  Has anyone else had this?  Also, I find forums that have Headlines about serious Liver problems while on Lyrica but when I click on them there is nothing written that discusses this problem.  Thanks in advance for any information.

I have been on Lyrica for about 7 months now, with a 1 month break because I didnt think it was helping LOL IT WAS!!  I have not had any ribcage pain that you are speaking of.  Also the lack of concentration will go away.  Once your body starts to get used to it.  Hope this helps.

I've been on Lyrica almost a year now. No "liver" pain. I'm not sure the liver is capable of being in pain, to be honest. So not sure what that might be in your case.

I still have memory problems on Lyrica, but it really helps with the pain.
I have Fibromyalgia, and nothing else!
I take Lyrica 225 mg/day and Tramadol (150mg time-released) and amytriptilene 7.5mg
