My pain consultant has said it might be worth me trying Lyrica/Pregabalin, as it can help with fibro pain and also generalised anxiety disorder (which I also have) he has left it up to me to think it over, but I would very much welcome your views, from the people who know!
If I do decide to go ahead....am seeing the doc on Jan 7th....what might I expect re side effects etc when first starting it?
Plus....do any of you get real benefits from taking it.....I already take quite a few meds but don't want to add a new one if it's not really going to help.
I'm unable to take codeine based analgesia as it makes me feel unwell so I only take paracetamol and Ibuprofen which are not really very effective.....hence his suggestion of Lyrica.
Thank you in advance and I hope you had as good a Christmas as fibro allows! and wish you all a Happy New Year.
Love Lucy xx
