I'll be seeing my Rheumy and a pulmonologist very soon. I think Lyrica they may be suggested but I have heard it causes great weight gain. I've alreday gained more than 40 pounds on Predmisone (7mo) for my Ulcerative Colitis. Has anyone experienced weight gain on Lyrica or other FM drugs?
My joints can't take any more weight!
