483733 tn?1326802046 The beach was so white and the water so clear and blue. It was the best beach I'd swam at before in the Carribean. And, it was the best food I'd had anywhere in the Carribean. We went on a day trip on the Wednesday.
Avatar f tn Luckily I am in hospital, so they gave me morphine straight away and its feeling much better. I really don't know very much about Lyrica and I'd like to hear what some people have experienced with it. I've been on Tramadol, Morphine tabs, Fentanyl patches, and a methotrexate, salazopyrene, azapress, anything you can think of.
Avatar f tn I have taken Lyrica this year and just weaned myself off of it. I had too many of the listed side effects from it. I was going to do a study but afterwards was told that I was ineligible because I was already taking the med.
1291268 tn?1274814522 Hi I was on Lyrica because again it was the "new thing" for Chronic Regional Pain/RSD, and "suspected seizures. I had so much trouble with Lyrica. i started on 75mg of Lyrica and was drunk, dizzy couldnt see straight {blurriness came at 300mg}. I felt sick agitated and hallucinated and vomited on it. Till my neurologist put me on to Neurontin. I was so scared about trying it. I have had that many adverse reactions to so many medications, I didnt want anymore.
Avatar m tn So when my new pain Dr. suggested lyrica I said let me think about 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 it was a wonder drug, I took no Percocets that day. I thought oh my God my suffering is over.
5100586 tn?1363648354 i hope to god when im off it completly in a couple of weeks that my stomach upset will go away and i can get back to the real me and keep working on my back injury without lyrica.......i am here to tell you....STAY AWAY FROM LYRICA!!! im sharing this story to help anyone who is thinking of increasing your doses or thinking of taking it. to many side effects. my sever effect is puking....stay safe my friends and do your research. its not worth the ordeal or losing your life over..
Avatar m tn I just remember how horrible I felt. The brain zaps, sweats, chills, upset stomach, you name it and it lasted forever. After 3 weeks I started Cymbalta and then just started getting worse. I thought it was from the Effexor and Lyrica withdrawal so I kept taking Cymbalta for quite awhile. Finally realized it was the Cymbalta. I went to my doctor and he ended putting me back on Effexor and Gabapentin. So I went through all of that hell and was basically back to where I started.
Avatar f tn The pain has been very bad for almost a year as the vertebra crumbled and I have taken Lortabs and Percocets now and again but they do not sit well on my stomach and most times I would rather just lay here and moan, lol. My prescription for the Lyrica is to start with 50mg once a day for 2 weeks and then go to 2 a day. Tomorrow is the end of my first week.
4214530 tn?1351165818 The Rebif is giving me severe insomnia (something I have never experienced) and depression along with pain and borderline-insane fluttering of the heart and upset stomach. Some forums say this passes after a while; I want a cure for the insomnia; because taking two Benadryl every night is no longer cutting it. The Rebif is powering through. I don't get any skin-effects with the Rebif; is this true for others?
Avatar m tn I forgot to mention, yesterday I would go to the bathroom no more than 30 minutes after each time I tried to eat a real small meal of diet food, and the stool had a really strange look and consistence (not really diarrhea), however today the stomach has not been upset after I ate, and like I said the nausea have not shown itself. The dizzyness is hard too, but at least it's manageable as long as I just lay all the time, but it would be nice if I knew how long I could expect it to stay.
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!
493942 tn?1227912266 i read in your post that you drank tea, i would get a decaf ginger tea and see if that helps. also, i take pepcid ac when my stomach is upset, which is most of the time! if you except that this could very well be anxiety and everything else has been ruled out then you can go on from there with treatment, some therapy and maybe medication for awhile. try to stay on a bland diet, which it sounds like your doing now, low acid, no spicy foods, low fat, nothing greasy and no caffeine.
Avatar f tn When I wake up, I am completely discombobulated! I am anxious, upset, worried, my stomach is in knots. Certainly not what one wants when waking up to face your day. I have been playing around with my Trazodone script (I usually take 150, moving it down, eliminating it, etc.) but it doesn't seem to affect it. I also take Zoloft, Lyrica, and occasionally Ativan. This morning, I woke up at 4:30 after 75 mg of Trazodone, felt ok, but still sleepy.
4823849 tn?1373661429 Ambien, Xanax (just once), Vitamins and Supplements, Protein Shakes and Vitamin Waters, Claritin and Sinus meds, lots of food, and my 100mg Lyrica pills. I’m convinced Lyrica (or Gabapentin) is a miracle worker. And....if you want the long story, be my guest: MONDAY – MARCH 18th | 2 DAYS TILL D-DAY Later this week I am going to attempt cold turkey from 4 Norcos/day. It took me about two months to get down to that low of a dose. I was at 15 pills/day before.
4214530 tn?1351165818 22mcg, were taken yesterday morning; reduced dosage; 150mg Lyrica taken at same time, and then again at 4 p.m. No Benadryl taken. Am very tired, but unable to sleep. Heart is racing, stomach very upset, chest tight/throat tight. Need help.
10977101 tn?1414282594 because nothing was giving me relief. sex was still painful and my ex would get more upset and distant from me. my dad was turning on me thinking that i was causing my pain and that i was starving my self because the test result would come back normal.and that really made my depression worse.having for own father doubt you like hurts. and my periods continued to get worse as well. i just dealt with the pain and continued to be miserable. and the i noticed i was having chest pain/heart burn.
1684282 tn?1505701570 I have discovered that if I go more than 10 or 12 hours without my tramadol I begin getting a headache which progresses to nausea, upset stomach and a generally not feeling well, to the point that I have to lie down. Sometimes I even have cold sweats and chills. I have found myself taking one just to relieve those symptoms I am concerned that I am dependent on the tramadol and it doesn’t look like I am going to get rid of the pain, and the need, any time soon.
470168 tn?1237474845 Oh, and I am on both a lupus med and a fibromyalgia med... I am taking Lyrica for the pain, which has been recently approved for fibromyalgia. It knocks a lot of pain out, but I warn you if you aren't on it... it makes you gain weight if you don't watch what you eat. As long as you keep an eye on it, though, you should only gain 5 pounds initially which generally comes off after a few weeks. I am also taking plaquenil, which is used for lupus people.
255722 tn?1452550141 Hi, I have had jaw pain exactly as you describe, and in my case it is definitely Lyme causing it. Mine also flared up dramatically when I started antibiotic treatment. According to my Lyme doc, it is neurological pain (lyme attacking nerves) not inflamamtion, which means ordinary painkillers won't do much to help it. My doc prescribed lyrica to calm it down, and that worked well.
293157 tn?1285877039 So I stated with 100mg at night for a week, then added another 100mg in the morning, I am now only up to 3 x 100mg per day but each time I upped the does the first 2 days I had a very upset tummy and had the spaced out feelings you describe, by the third day it was just an upset tummy and then after that I was fine. It isn't helping the pains, tingling, etc yet but I am not taking very much. My doc has told me not to go to anymore until our appt next week when we discuss the way forward.
Avatar n tn You said it has no side effects. But can it interfere with other meds? And does it upset your stomach at all. I am very sensitive to all meds and vitamins and such can just tear my stomach up. Anyway, mine came on about 6 months after a cervical fusion. Yet, my Neurologist says that the PN is independent of the fusion. So, if the alpha lipoic acid works, I might just try it. Can you go into more detail as to what it is and how it works. Thanks!
Avatar f tn Have had to stop taking all pain meds except tylenol because of stomach upsets which is causing UC flares daily. Had to quit Lyrica due to heavyconcrete like pain in legs and severe swelling of feet and legs. Cannot take any antiinflammatories due to stomach pains. All pain meds also cause stomach pain. Besides stretching exercises, heat, medicated muscle rubs, music,pet, imargery and deep breathing what can I do? I am seeing psychiatrist who wants to tweak my meds.
Avatar m tn I've had to quit nearly cold turkey a few times when I ran out, so I've experienced all of those typical opiate WD symptoms (hot/cold sweats, extreme restlesness, insomnia, anxiety, stomach issues and other flu like symptoms), and tbh, I haven't had to deal with too much of that so far). Actually, what has been most difficult for me has been the anxiety and depression.
Avatar n tn Hi - I need to lose about 60-70 lbs. I have an underactive thyroid and am on levoxyl (SP?) - Anyway I have been jogging 4 miles 3x/week + 1 hour of weights at the gym and have a trainer. - I can't lose any weight! I fluctuate between a loss of 1-2 lbs but thats it....The workouts have reduced my cholest. and my Thyroid is norm. - my mean blood glucose is 101.
Avatar n tn I quit before because of nausea and a very upset stomach with constant burning, loud burping (sorry) and over all queezy feeling. I really want the weight loss benefit but can't take this too long. The only reason I am able to make it this time is I stopped a few other meds-Previcid,Zocor and Celebrex. That makes it easier. I also have difficulty with soda or any carbonated drink. They all taste yucky and taste flat. Some foods feel odd to chew. Has anyone else had gastric problems?
Avatar n tn I also get very tired all the time but find it very hard to sleep with the pain, have constant stomach upset and frequent migraines. Are you on any medication? I have tried almost everything but am now on Cymbalta which has had some success with neuropathic pain. I spent a long time in the rain forests in Australia years ago and wonder if I may also have contracted Lyme disease although they say there is no sign of it now.
Avatar f tn She still has a neuropathy but she is on an antidepressant that works on the pain and depression plus a drug like Lyrica and another one and now she has stabilized. Her dad thought it was all in her head so to speak and wasn't helpful other than to keep her from getting a research procedure done. So, I would start to think about maybe doing something similar is to get onto program where they get you off the opiate onto something maybe more helpful.
Avatar f tn 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.Now another told me that Diagnostic were that he note Facet Arthrosis in the lower spine -L4-L5 and L5-SI and mild facet hypertrophy.But no significant disc bulge or protrusion is seen at any level. Disc space are well maintained. Now after my baby was born 2 month she came down with Baterial Meningitis after I stop breastfeeding expain that to me.
