Lyrica and leg swelling

Common Questions and Answers about Lyrica and leg swelling


333535 tn?1227022209 The only thing I take for the pain of it all is lyrica and sunday afternoon I went shopping for about 4 hours, in and out of the car not just walking around one place, so i got some breaks and i seriously wanted someone to shoot me!! I was in so much pain I thought I would totally lose it! SO I guess what I am trying to say is I hope it works for you, try to be positive and maybe it will!
874521 tn?1424120397 I simply can't wait to be done with this Lyrica!!! Before the Lyrica I was on Cymbalta and only stayed in that for about a year and had to quit it bc it was making me feel bi-polar, my moods were all over the place and so much crying!! I was definately suicidal, and suffered from bad "zaps" like sticking your finger in a socket except it would zap and jerk me all over especially I'm my head/brain leading to migraines.
193953 tn?1272078626 I hope that in time the nerves that were damaged by shingles will heal. Please note, however, Lyrica is filtered through the kidneys and in the beginning of usage of Lyrica I was on the near maximum allowed dosage of Lyrica and it resulted in near kidney shut down as reported to me by my Neptrologist (kidney specialist). It seems then that a managed dosage of Lyrica to match individual tolerance can help in the management of pain. It sure helps me with shingles pain management.
193953 tn?1272078626 I had flu like symptoms for 2 weeks straight and headaches and agitation and anxiety, weird body temp,leg rls though. I still have GI problems, some insomnia, but its getting much better! I just recently read about a woman weaning off Paxil and having electric shocks in the back of her head and back. Come to find out, they were very common withdrawal symptoms of getting of Paxil.
400099 tn?1282958464 I have a lot of trouble with swelling in my feet, legs, and hands. My doctor thinks it's the lyrica, but it only happens once in a while, so I'm not so sure. I take lacix when this happens and it works real well for me. Luckily I have no side effects from it.
Avatar m tn I have had RSD for 9 years and they just put me on Lyrica to help with the pain. The lyrica has really helped with the pain but i have gain 40 pounds will taking it. Do you know of any othe drug that you can take to help with the weight gain.
Avatar m tn i was on klonopin for anxiety and restless leg syndrome, my dr just changed me to 75mg of lryica twice a day and i have noticed that i am not having the nightly panic attacks or the rls either.... and it is also helping with my nerve pain in my back due to herniated discs.. so far no side effects aside from a little lethargy but that is to be expected.
Avatar n tn hi, I was given Lyrica a while ago. It was great for my leg pain and the sedation effecta were alright by me. However, I experienced tongue swellling, throat swelling and closing and breathing difficulties. I was devastated!!!Finally there was something that provided my legs with with comfort and I can't take it. I now take Gabapentin which helps but not as well as Lyrica. With our chronic pain I don't think any one med.
Avatar f tn It did help with the pain but I am tried of the weight gain and swelling of my legs, feet and hands and the blurred vision and the worst thing was the sweats! I hope this helps someone - because I really think I am dying sometimes it has been 3 weeks - I will never take these drugs again!
669241 tn?1236267944 I was on Lyrica 75 mgs for Fibromyalgia and it worked great for the pain, but I had trouble with my hads and feet swelling, I also gain alot of weight...Ihad to stop becaouse of the swelling..i didnt have any trouble stopping...I was told by the pharmacy it was a controlled substance...
450140 tn?1317950904 Hi there, Man do I know about leg pain, mine swell up so much, and the heat in them is incredible, also, i get these small little bumps, and they start in the bottom of my legs right up to the thigh, and eventually bust into large or small bruises, I showed the doc yesterday, also, my ankles are in a mess, I have been puttin on stuff to help them, and the left one is healed up pretty good, but i have skinny feet if you know what i mean ,and when they swell i barely can walk, and the legs just do
365931 tn?1198073762 It is starting to work and is non narcotic. Lyrica and also Neurontin are two that I know of. Wish you the best! I sure remember those days feeling like I was dragging my numb foot around and tears streaming down my face as I tried to work.
Avatar f tn I did that before and it didn't help. I had a prescription to Lyrica last year and it did give me brain fog and I called it my Stupid drug and got off it. However, last night, out of sheer frustration, I substituted 50 mg Lyrica for a 100 mg Neurontin and within 20 minutes, I kid you not, the stiffness felt like it was flowing out of my body and the pain in my hands from neuropathy decreased by 50 percent. I almost cried with joy.
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 it. On less than 75 mg day the nerve pain and spine tingling was nearly unbearable. Added DLPA 500 mg twice a day and it helps a lot with the muscle pain and stiffness. Allowed me to get a lot of cleaning done with only a little extra soreness in my right shoulder from constantly wiping the wood work.

Avatar f tn As of today I the back of my leg, and my foot are still swollen and my foot burns like it is on fire. According to the medical literature everything should be back to normal. NOT! Has anyone gone through this and what medications were you given and how long did it take for you to be able to walk normally?
Avatar f tn Now have swelling and a pressure feeling in my calves and a pricking / sensation in my thighs. The prickings is th worst pain I have ever felt. I don't even like to drive anymore. It hurts so had. I have been to cardiologist for all kind of test. all ok. I have been to a nuerosurgeon and nuerologist and my regular doctor. I have been to 12 specialists altogether and they find nothing on my mri's, cat scans and x-rays. Nerve conduction test was negative. This is not in my head.
Avatar f tn my vison started closing in like a white light and then got a semi-migraine. Next was the leg and foot cramping which went on for weeks. Next my feet this point I went to a DR. who gave me water pills. Swelling went down. However then my legs started to feel really bad like bugs crawling on them for weeks. I finally got moved and then my back went out...I could barely walk for a couple of weeks.
Avatar n tn I can only hope that my pain will go away that soon and not remain.
Avatar n tn no numbness or anything on the back of my leg. While the leg is numb, it still gets itcy and it is very irritating to scratch it. If I stand or walk for too long, the burning sensation comes into play, and I have to sit down, because it also hurts my lower back, makes my back feel like it will break if I don't sit down. This has been going on for 23 years! And not one doctor can tell me what is wrong...
667923 tn?1421466324 I still have questions..if that is okay. I have had my leg to start swelling and it has done this once before, but worse to where I had to go to the hospital and they just said that I had a pinched nerve and gave me children's motrin. I didn't ask for anything. I was just scared it was a blood clot or I was having a stroke or heart attack. So you think that the Topamax is okay. I do too. I am so glad, but it is strange that is when my feet started getting the edema.
Avatar f tn Just google ,Lyrica w/d or When does Lyrica w/d end and you will find a bunch of forum and ppl going through hell trying to get off it! Most can't handle it! Im soo trying to be strong and deal with it! I have chronic pain already, so Im used to being in constant pain!
Avatar f tn I had an baby got an epidural,since the epidural I been having severe lower back pain and numbness and tingling in my right. Now this what the doctor have told me since. Before I tell can tell you can you tell me the probem.One doctor told me I haveBack Pain with Sciatica, Hematuria and he went on im his notes I have MS and the MS is called Arthralgia and Muscle problem.
Avatar n tn I experience pain in my left leg muscle below the knee and above the ankle, mainly the outer part of the leg. It hurts most at night and wake me up constantly. This is not a pain I experience everyday but lately it seems to have gotten worse and happen more frequently. I had test done for blood clot and everything was ok. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia a few years ago and was wondering if this could possibly be one of the symptoms.
Avatar m tn Now this doesn't help me at all knowing that herpes tend to hide in the nerve root and there is information that herpes can cause nerve pain. Not to mention other ppl online saying they had muscle twitching and/or leg and groin pain before or after they were diagnosed with herpes. What am I to do now?? The nerve pain seems to have subsided a tad but is still there and the twitching has not stopped since it began almost 4 months ago.
Avatar n tn I also have that annoying warm sensation that is in my right leg and it moves from my ankle and up about 4inches and seems to be very frequent. I too thought it was a little heater under the seat of my car that was warming my leg-but the heat was not on. Also, the balls of my feet are burning along with this sensation. I need to know what this is?
Avatar f tn There are times where the pain is tolerable then I move and there is shear pain that shoots down my leg. There are times that I could swear I feel the rod in my leg and I can not move my leg without this severe shooting pain down my leg. Now I do have sciatic that is caused from my lower back. I currently take 500mg of lyrica for the nerve pain from my back.
Avatar f tn Here it is Feb 21st almost the 22nd and I am still with the leg and foot pain. A CAT scan has been done and so far all of the results have showed nothing, not a nerve hiiting a screw,,, nerve hitting the cage,,,,On Meds Tram, Oxy, Tizanadine, and Neurontin. No matter how they are taken, there is still pain, shooting hot pain, very bad muscle spasms, feet hurt after walking. knee gives out, never know when this is going to happen. Have to walk steps using both feet. VERY distessed at this point.
Avatar n tn going on 3 the pain in my right leg is almost gone but now im feeling the pain to start in my left leg also when im driving the pain flares up in right leg or when i bend over the pain in my back is bad and feels like all my leg muscles are being pulled i guess i just want to know if this is normal with a bulging disc
