That's great news about the Lyrica. I sure hope it works for you. For me Lyrica was definitely better than Neurontin. Not only did it have fewer side effects, but it also works better.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. smilewinkgrin

Well I took the first dose on the night of the 21st, and the next morning I couldn't wake up for the life of me. My kids got them selfs ready for school which freaked me out, I'm very picky about what they wear and that they are dressed right for how cold it is outside or else they'd go in their swimsuits. But they did just fine, except my daughter still had spray on pink hair dye from the day before cause it was "wacky wendseday" at school. So I woke up a half an hour before my kdis got out of school, at 2:30, and I freaked out, casue I had laundry to do (my kids are out of clean socks and underwear), and my son had to finish his derby car for cubscout that we havent even started on that had to be done in 3 hours (thank God my dad got off work early to help him cause I was doing a terrible job) And my daughter needed cupcakes for her school cause her birthday is today, and I realized I ahvent even ordered her b-day cake or anything..ahhhhhhhh, I feel so overwhelmed. I got he laundry, derby car, and cupcakes done. but I'm so behind on my daughter's b-day plans. I havent even got a chance to buy her presents, which I'm going to do while she's at school tomorow. I'm planning on doing her party this sunday and she doesnt like that, but everyone is working and it is easier for them to show on Sundays. She really wants a pinata but its too cold outside, but maybe it wont rain that day and it wont be too bad. If anyone has any advise on throwing a fun, easy, quick, and painless 7 year old girl Hannah-Montana Birthday party, please tell me. Thank you.

HC,
I don't know how you do it all! You're a saint! I should have warnd you about the Lyrica, I'm 300lbs and it knocked the crap out of me too. I couldn't get up the 1st morning after I took it too. I was late for work! (I'm never ever late!) I stopped it after a week, my pot & 1/2 of coffee didn't help at all! Good Luck, I hope it helps you and is worth it!

I had a daycare ~ used to wake up at 3AM and bake birthday cakes and clean house.
It's easier with grown up kids.

Hang in there, Hello~Kitty.

Of course I didn't have Chronic Pain when I was doing the AM baking & cleaning. wink

You know, I miss those cakes and the little car for Cub Scouts. Those painfree
days when I had little kids. It's not fair for you, Kitty. You got pain AND little
kids.
I glued a penny on my son's car to make it go faster. Called it "The Penny Pusher"
He won!

Hi Kitty,

Sorry to hear about all your troubles! I hope things end up working out for you & the Lyrica helps. I'm glad to hear your Degu is doing much better! Sorry I don't have much more to say, I'm running on no sleep, not to mention pain & side effects from nasty prednisone, among others.

Sorry to hear how things are going for you. Im on opioids for pain and lyrica as well, lyrica definatley helps me and your doc sounds terriblle, my doc has no prob with the lyrica, and ive seen two others for dif probs but they also have said no prob with lyrica if I were to change to them.
