I don't know if I should post this in here or the Lyme's page but my legs are so swollen and puffy I have small white blotches all over them. I don't know if it is from the Lyrica or what? I have an appointment with my rhuemy on Thursday. Does anyone else seem to be really puffy around the legs? And I am keeping mobile. I try to get up from my desk atleast every hour or so to walk around.

I have problems with swollen ankles and feet. Sometimes they are completely fine and other times they are all swollen up. No blotches though. Be sure to talk with your doctor about it.

Thanks,
 I will be sure to talk to my doctor about it. I see you have a C-Pap machine too, which mask do you use?

I swell alot as well, but not with blotches. It might have something to do with the Lyme, idk. But I agree, def check with your doctor about it!

If you have swelling of hands and feet (I suppose legs count, too) you need to talk to your doctor.  Here is what the Physician's Desk Reference has to say about Lyrica.

Update:

My doctor is weening me off of the Lyrica. She thinks that is what is causing the problem.

Thanks for the input
