Hi Everyone!
 
I had an interesting day yesterday.  For about at least 6 or 7 hours, I felt almost completely like my old (pre-fibro) self.  I haven't had that much energy or that little pain in at least a year.  It was wonderful!  Of course, my pain and fatigue came back full force last night, and are still here today.  It's very strange, every evening, like clockwork, at 8:00 I start feeling worse than I did during the day, and by 9:30 I feel awful.  It doesn't matter what time I wake up, when I take my meds, what I did throughout the day... I actually think it might have to do with whether or not the sun is out.  Do I sound crazy? 
Anyway, I've been on Lyrica for about six days now, and I was wondering if it could've been the reason that I felt so much better yesterday.  I've also noticed that I'm not nearly as stiff in the mornings, which is wonderful.  Those of you who have had success with Lyrica, is that how it started working for you?  I'm really hoping it is because of the Lyrica, because then maybe I'll feel better more often. smilewinkgrin
 
Take care!

Oh yeah, it could be the Lyrica. In the beginning the response from Lyrica feels wonderful. In addition, the change in seasons is good. I hope you continue to feel good but please, do not overdo life on your good days. Just enjoy the wonderful moments.

I always start to feel better in the evenings. For some reason. I think it is psychological, because there is less stress on a person in the evenings, at least it is that way for me. Because I have less responsibility in the evenings.

I really hope that the lyrica is working for you and continues to work for you. You are so lucky if that is the case. And I am happy for you.

Take care, have a good day

Hugs, Karen

Hi Sara Beth..

I don't know what it was that made you feel better, maybe the Lyrica, maybe the season.  Whatever it is I'm happy to hear you had such a great day!!

Take care,

Thanks, everyone!
I've been continuing to feel pretty good during the day, and not so good in the evenings... but it's still much better than feeling bad all the time! I am loving the warmer weather and sunshine! Hope it makes you all feel better too!

Take care,
