I had the same problem when I started Lyrica and I talked to my doc. I too was terrified he would take me off the Lyrica and I had been in horrible pain for so long without it. My doc put me on a mild water pill and I have to put my feet up,raise them higher then my heart when they swell bad. I dont usually swell alot unless I have been on my feet too long specially in the hot weather. I have now been on the Lyrica for almost a year and its working out fine as long as I do what I am supposed to when I swell..........also watch the salty foods that makes it worse.
