Ive been on Lyrica
for 2 years. Yes--at first you
are going to feel odd, but if you
can just stick it out on a low dose for a month and then slowly have it increased, you will find that those "odd" feelings stop. I still have a ton of pain, quite unbearable, but when I stopped the Lyrica for 2 weeks (i ran out) I found that my pain was through the roof--so it must help somehow. I have the burning type of pain in my neck and cramps everywhere else.
