As much as I hate dealing with the awful burning and other “nerve”pain , I’ve decided to just try to deal with it. I know this is easier said than done, but since I stopped taking Lyrica over a month ago, I’ve noticed the debilitating back pain, weakness and tiredness in my back, hips and thighs has disappeared. I still have a bit of back pain, but it’s much more tolerable and I just plan my day accordingly. I’m too afraid to try any other medication as the side effects are too much for me to handle. 🙁

A lot of people have mentioned the good effects of Neurontin, however, the amount I’d probably have to take concerned me a great deal. I had a left nephrectomy 4 years ago so I try to limit medication I take as I can’t afford to damage my remaining kidney. So…sigh. Guess I’ll try to be a trooper and tough it out. :rolleyes:

Thanks again for all the suggestions and take care,
