Lynn, Lyrica is used for seizures as well as fibro and I see that you have both. I've not heard of these headaches and eye pain but I know there have been many that stopped the Lyrica because of the side affects.
If these headaches and eye pain are that bad, I'd certainly contact the doctor and let them know this is going on. Why take medication that causes you in more pain? Headaches are dibilitating!
Hi Lyn, so good to 'see' you. I was given Lyrica 2x by 2 different drs. The 1st time was a low dose and it didn't help in any way. The dr told me she didn't expect it to help me at all. I was given a larger dose a few months later by my ortho dr. The headaches were crippling. I told him on the follow up visit what was happening and he said you can't get a headache from Lyrica, I said Yes you can, I have a beauty right now. I stopped the med, and away went the headaches. Hmmm?!? He wasn't happy, told my former pcp I had been on it again and it caused headaches. She got nasty and said that I didn't try hard enough. I should have continued the med. Yeah, I need more pain in my life.
I hope you feel so much better w/o the med. Some drs just don't get it. If they had the reactions patients do, I don't see them keeping w/ the meds.
Char, I hope you will post more often, we value your input and your friendship. Don't worry about your typing skills, we all just try our best. Hope you have a good day!
God bless. Alice.
