Hi Lilly, I don't believe I have welcomed you so welcome. That had to be a horrible experience!!! I have a really bad medphobia and never could bring myself to try lyrica. I flushed the whole bottle that was out dated not long ago. I'm like Tyno and prefer to stick with meds that have been out there for years.
My rheumy is sooo understanding about my medphobia and tells me to try just a little bit of a med at a time til I see how I'm going to react to it. So you might want to do that from now on when given a new med.
Lupus was one of the first things my doc tested me for. I didn't know that til I asked him if I had been tested for lupus and he told me I had been. So ask your doc about it.
luv and hugs
