I had an interesting day yesterday. For about at least 6 or 7 hours, I felt almost completely like my old (pre-fibro) self. I haven't had that much energy or that little pain in at least a year. It was wonderful! Of course, my pain and fatigue came back full force last night, and are still here today. It's very strange, every evening, like clockwork, at 8:00 I start feeling worse than I did during the day, and by 9:30 I feel awful. It doesn't matter what time I wake up, when I take my meds, what I did throughout the day... I actually think it might have to do with whether or not the sun is out. Do I sound crazy?
Anyway, I've been on Lyrica for about six days now, and I was wondering if it could've been the reason that I felt so much better yesterday. I've also noticed that I'm not nearly as stiff in the mornings, which is wonderful. Those of you who have had success with Lyrica, is that how it started working for you? I'm really hoping it is because of the Lyrica, because then maybe I'll feel better more often.
