I have this now and I hate it. I'm on my week "off" of abxs, and I'm going down hill. The miracle drug "Lyrica" has only worked for the "pain to the touch" in my skin, but my bone pain has increased and now I'm getting shooting pin pricks into my wrist and finger bones. God I hate this disease. The more Lyrica I take (I was prescribed to increase the amt in order to relieve the bone pain - haha) the woozier I get. I don't mind woozy for a day or two while trying to adjust, but I hate the side effects along with the original pain... it's like "What's the point?" but I digress into my own Lyme he11, as usual.
