Hey hms1,

I am not on lyrica but I do know that it is used to treat nerve pain so it can be used by those suffering from MS as well as diabetes.  I wanted to welome you to HW.  I read your other post about writing and publishing a book.  That is really neat.  What was the subject??

I hope you find support here and post often.  We also have an MS chat on Monday nights.  This happens at 6pm central time.  I hope you will consider joining us.

Love and prayers,

I do not have MS, but I am on Lyrica. I take it for Fibro. I had some side effects when I first started taking it. Like sleepiness, drowsiness, lack of concentration, and I have also experienced headaches alot, and that sort of thing, but nothing that I couldnt live with. Some days it makes me feels 'out-of-it'. Loopy-like I guess. When I explained these feelings to my counselor she told me it sounded like I was high. I wouldnt know what that feels like, but I guess thats a good way of putting it. I was researching Lyrica on it site, and it said some people experienced a sense of being 'high' when they took it. So, I dont really worry. But it is strange. I have actually been running into things! Its kind of funny, but I guess it is not a good thing! eyes   I stumble alot. But, I figure as long as I feel good, it is worth stumbling a few times!
It has been almost a month since I started taking it, and I can say it has helped me alot, although I know that it can not take all the pain away. But, I am happy with the results for now! I sleep so much better, which makes me feel good when I wake up and gives me energy now.

Of course, it is different for everyone. Plus, I dont know much about MS.... I wish you the best and hope it helps you! Take care!
