Hi everyone
I've been gone for a while because RSD and back pain has been so horrific that I can barely function. I hope everyone is hanging in there and coping. Me...I'm having a hard time but I've been feeling slightly better in the past few days so I thought I'd drop in and ask a question.

PM switched me from Neurontin to Lyrica and I think the Neurontin was better for me. Since being on Lyrica (almost a month now), RSD flare has been terrible...especially left leg, which was the origin of my RSD. Right hand and lower back are also showing signs of an impending flare.

I'm curious as to why my Lyrica bottte says "controlled substance" ???? Is there a narcotic in Lyrica?

Re my back surgery...I've been suffering from anxiety and panic attacks whenever I think about it. I may have to put this off for a while until I can get a better handle on it. Maybe because the RSD is so bad lately?? I'm thinking of going to a psychologist (someone I saw prior to my SCS trial).

Very depressed lately :( Also on Wellbutrin to quit smoking and wondering if this is contributing to the depression??

I'd appreciate any input. Love to all,
