I usually post on the chronic pain and fibromyalgia sites, but I stumbled across this thread about lyrica. I didn't know it was used to treat headaches! hmmmmm learn something new everyday. I take it for the fibro and it is sure working. The funny thing is, for this first week, I have had a headache that I'm sure is related to the drug. Having waited it out for a few days, the headaches have stopped and all I'm left is with the fibro pain relief in my legs and feet.
I do suffer from migraines from time to time and mine are triggered by intense emotional responses. I know this for a fact. I get angry or terribly sad and bam,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, a few days later, I have a migraine. It takes a few days usually before it rears it's ugly head and then wow! I take percocet for my fibro and that is the only medicine that works for my migraines too. I have tried other migraine medications, but they do not work.
Thanks for letting me share here.
