A couple of years ago my PCP gave me Lyrica
for the limboland stabbing foot pain I was having. After I worked up to a fairly high dose (it does have to be worked up to), it took the edge off the pain, that's all. I think it's so individual that there's no saying how it would work for you.
is considered 'Son of Neurontin,' for what that's worth, and generally is less hard on the body. Years ago I had a good bit of Neurontin and had a muscle constantly jumping to a boogie beat.
