I've been taking Lyrica for about
a year now for nerve pains (some are probably related to my lumbar spine problems) and I have found that it does help me a lot. I had been without for a few days while waiting for a new fills being sent to me and right away, many of my nerve pains were coming back. Once I started them again, most of those pains subsided. Now...I do still get severe nerve pain exacerbations, which I believe are cause by spinal nerve compression (probably disk issues) and nothing seems to help that except for getting a nerve block. But for day to day it seems to keep most of my nerve pains at bay. I think if I stopped it, I'd be in trouble.
