No more Lyrica (for now)

Well, I’m no longer taking Lyrica. I’ve had so many issues lately and as I’m not sure if they were caused by Lyrica, I decided to stop taking it for now. Yes, my neurologist is aware of my decision as we need to determine what’s causing these problems.

I’m not looking forward to the return of the burning knee and foot pain, but I have to admit, the things I’ve experienced recently was much worse.

Not sure if anyone else taking Lyrica has experienced almost debilitating back pain, tiredness in the back, hips and legs, but if you have, please let me know. The tired feeling was just as bad as the pain as I was almost shuffling to get around. Shuffling really doesn’t work if you already have foot drop. 🙁

Take care and be well!!
