Hi, and welcome! Robin gave you some great advice. There are many on this forum that couldn't tolerate Lyrica because of the side affects so you definitely are not alone. You probably should call your doctor and see if they have another suggestion for you. Some people do have good success on Lyrica but I think more do not like it.
I use ibuprofen with food, extra strength Tylenol, malic acid/magnesium supplements and vitamin D supplements for pain and fatigue. There are links about that in the Fibro 101 thread that Robin directed you to. Also, it's good to keep moving and doing gentle stretching exercises and find a gentle exercise that suits you. For me, it's walking. It helps keep the blood flowing and the muscles more flexible. Water exercise is another good one if you have access to a pool. But, if you sit or lay too much, you will be stiff as a board.
I'm so glad you found us and joined our fibro family. Don't hesitate to ask questions because we are here to help you. Read back posts. There is a world of information in them. Also, you might want to type in "Lyrica" in the google Custom Search at the top of the forum and you will see all the posts written concerning Lyrica. That could help you decide what you want to do too.
Be sure to let us know what you do. We really do care. I hope to hear more from you soon.
