Taking Cymbalta and Lyrica wor: #dae8f4'>ith a fairly mild muscle relaxer, and can mostly function. Can't say all is rosy, but at least I can do most of what I need to do for my day.
Avatar_f_tn I live wor: #dae8f4'>ith chronic pain and other serious medical issues and Im not even addicted or dependent on lyrica and Im having horrible w/ds! You can do or: #dae8f4'>it! You just need to come to us for support! We are here for you!!!
Avatar_f_tn after my post cancer dr saw me for a regular 6 months visor: #dae8f4'>it.. He saw my whor: #dae8f4'>ite count up and he did a pet scan of <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span></span>, etc..and ran a <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span></span> antibody test..I had nodules which after an ultrasound...or: #dae8f4'>caused a terrible sore throat and nodules were examined by an endocrinologist and I had hashimoto's autoimmune or: #dae8f4'>thyroidor: #dae8f4'>itis,, I even saw my dentist and he sent me to endodontist for what was diagnosed as neuropathy pain.. when I finally saw my pain dr..I see him every month..
Avatar_m_tn low grade infectious condor: #dae8f4'>itions 1. You need Free T3, Free T4 and Reverse T3 to rule out low <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span></span> function. Please make sure you pay attention to detail. I communicate this information to 100s of people and while most of them do nothing about or: #dae8f4'>it, many of them reply to me that their or: #dae8f4'>thyroid function is fine, only beor: #dae8f4'>cause their (often flawed conventional ) tests indicated so! The standard tests only check serum levels and NOT function in the cells.
Avatar_n_tn I have been taking 50 mg Lyrica for about 10 days. Started out wor: #dae8f4'>ith 1 per day and then 2 a day (last Friday). I am experiencing swelling in hands and feet. How do I take myself off this medication wor: #dae8f4'>ithout having or: #dae8f4'>problems.
462570_tn?1273636577 I am on Lyrica.. The side effects off the start weren't very much fun.. Extremely tired and very dizzy(light headed).. The side effects seem to come and go. Lyrica has helped me a bor: #dae8f4'>it so I figure take the good wor: #dae8f4'>ith the bad. My rheumatologist upped my dosage so I'm dealing wor: #dae8f4'>ith the wonderful effects again..I am also on Amor: #dae8f4'>itriptyline at bedtime.. or: #dae8f4'>it's too help me relax so I can sleep. I might as well be taking a flintstone vor: #dae8f4'>itamin beor: #dae8f4'>cause or: #dae8f4'>it doesn't work..
Avatar_m_tn So when my new pain Dr. suggested lyrica I said let me think about or: #dae8f4'>it and I called Eli Lilly explaining my allergies and they said they wouldn't be any. I'm only on three Percocets day, I have no addiction, I despise them! But my second day on lyrica I was completely pain free, I thought or: #dae8f4'>it was a wonder drug, I took no Percocets that day. I thought oh my God my suffering is over.
10704670_tn?1412132315 I've been taking Lyrica for fibromyalgia for several years, and have been taking a low dosage of just 75 mg. once nightly. For over a month, now, I've been having achy joints in wrists, elbows, and feet -- along wor: #dae8f4'>ith ache behind my eyes, nervousness, and worst of all, "flu-like" feelings going throughout the body. I usually wake in the morning feeling much better, but by late afternoon or evening, all these sick feelings set in.
755322_tn?1330272714 Weaned off the Lyrica, finally, about middle of July and started on baclofen, August 1 for muscle spasms. What a wonderful difference! Baclofen even at 15 mg day has reduced the nerve pain to nothing and spasms are so very much better! I am so glad to be off the Lyrica. My legs don't swell in the afternoon anymore. :) Working my way up to 30 mg over time. Walked half mile 3 days in a row after sunset, wor: #dae8f4'>ith no residual pain.
Avatar_n_tn The new Doctor has sent me to the Rheumatology (After a posor: #dae8f4'>itive ANA test) and he to a Neurologist about the cramping and parthesia in hands and feet. My fatigue and soreness goes back along time before the <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span></span> at age of 28 not getting the fibromyalgia last December, and the parathesia went from being or: #dae8f4'>caused from spinal stenosis to idiopathic polyneuropathy last March.
755322_tn?1330272714 Tried to wean off the Lyrica but probably did too fast so I picked back up to 3 - 25 mg a day and that does or: #dae8f4'>it. On less than 75 mg day the nerve pain and spine tingling was nearly unbearable. Added DLPA 500 mg twice a day and or: #dae8f4'>it helps a lot wor: #dae8f4'>ith the muscle pain and stiffness. Allowed me to get a lot of cleaning done wor: #dae8f4'>ith only a lor: #dae8f4'>ittle extra soreness in my right shoulder from constantly wiping the wood work.
Avatar_m_tn Rhuematologist gave medication LYRICA 75mg(2 times per day) but i have got only 25% relief.I have stopped LYRICA and Rhuematologist,suggested CYMBALTA.I have used CYMBALTA only for 4 days and 4 days i haven't sleep and stopped using CYMBALTA.Again continuing LYRICA twice a day (2X75mg). ALso i do physical exercize everyday. Dr Mark ,all my or: #dae8f4'>problems wor: #dae8f4'>ith or: #dae8f4'>thyroid or fabromyalgia ? Since last 5 months my TSH is 0.05. I need suggestion and help on my or: #dae8f4'>problems .
Avatar_f_tn Told nurse I didn't see point in coming in since I have a follow up for the Lyrica on the 7th and I know doc will say there is nothing she can do for me. Called MDWise and Pete was disheartened that Hanus' office said they can't see me until I'm off MDWise and is going to call Patient Relations to see if they can "straighten this out" and get me into see Hanus.
Avatar_f_tn I put in the search on this websor: #dae8f4'>ite for weightloss and sweating and hyperthryroid came up. And ALL of my maybe symptoms are in the <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span></span> disease category. Getting concerned that I have another health issue...my poor husband, don't know if he could take another health issue wor: #dae8f4'>ith me.....
667923_tn?1421466324 I am going to ask my doc. Mon. for or: #dae8f4'>it and give or: #dae8f4'>it a try. I wonder if you can tapper off of Lyrica and take the Topamax at the same time. I have been on 150mg. of Lyrica for so long that I take or: #dae8f4'>it every 6-8 hrs. ..no joke, my pain is so intense. I can tolerate pain well, but this is ridiculous. I also just found out I have a Chiari Malformation and am sure a lot of my pain is from or: #dae8f4'>it. I wonder what you take for that...(heavy sigh...great more meds) I might have to have brain surgery.

335728_tn?1331418012 \ Anyway, I will let you know how the results come back and maybe we can share our or: #dae8f4'>thyroid stories along wor: #dae8f4'>ith our MS stories!!
Avatar_n_tn Regarding your question, you really are not treating T3 and T4, you are treating symptoms, by adjusting the levels of free T3 and free T4 (FT3 and FT4). The <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span></span> glands produce mostly T4 hormone and some T3. Most of this is inactive beor: #dae8f4'>cause or: #dae8f4'>it is bound up wor: #dae8f4'>ith protein. Only the small portion that is unbound (free) is active to regulate metabolism and most other body functions. Think of T4 as a storage hormone that circulates through the body.
667923_tn?1421466324 I just wanted to give a possible or: #dae8f4'>cause of your feet swelling -- or: #dae8f4'>it could be the Lyrica - that is listed as one of the side effects and I, also, had or: #dae8f4'>it when I was on the Lyrica (one of the reasons I had to stop taking or: #dae8f4'>it). Something you may want to ask eor: #dae8f4'>ither your doctor or pharmacist about. I hope you feel better real soon.
Avatar_n_tn and sent me to a neurologist who took me seriously and I am still under his care. I am taking Levoxyl 1.125 (<span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span></span> levels are supposedly normal wor: #dae8f4'>ith or: #dae8f4'>it) ... Lyrica, Soma and pain meds, but I don't like having to do that to function. Anyone who has had leg pain from or: #dae8f4'>thyroid removal and beat or: #dae8f4'>it... please tell me how you did or: #dae8f4'>it!!! Thanks again for the advice on the magnesium.
Avatar_f_tn I had an ultrasound and both sides of my <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span></span> are slightly enlarged and I have a nodule wor: #dae8f4'>ith complex cystic and solid ethnogencor: #dae8f4'>ity measuring 0.8 x 0.5 x 0.5 cm. I also had a baby 8 months ago. I feel like I'm falling apart ! I have so many different symptoms and I don't know if or: #dae8f4'>it's from my or: #dae8f4'>thyroid or something else!
251991_tn?1239299630 Hello and sorry to hear all your or: #dae8f4'>problems but that is why I am doing this, I have all them or: #dae8f4'>problems to and my Endo. says or: #dae8f4'>it isn't my <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span></span>, I have had numerous test and MRI'S since December when this started, hang in there and any new news you get lets us all know.
Avatar_m_tn Sore throat and ears full feeling, tongue sore at the back like someone pulled on or: #dae8f4'>it? Weird. Oh and then there is the brain fog and emotional crying alternating wor: #dae8f4'>ith anger......I had to ask myself what the heck is going on????? I decided today to take myself off this trial - or: #dae8f4'>its not worth or: #dae8f4'>it at all. Has anyone had similar experiences???? To all the Fibromates out there, never give up the fight.
Avatar_n_tn Just to mention I am being treated for ADHD wor: #dae8f4'>ith Concerta and I have C.I.D.P. which I take Lyrica for the nerve biopsy that was done last summer. Thanks I feel lost in this waor: #dae8f4'>iting game.
