Hi everybody,

So I saw my pain doctor today and he really wants me to try the lyrica again. I tried it for a short period of time back when I was first diagnosed with rsd/crps. It took away a little (I mean little) bit of the burning sensation away but none of the actual pain. I wasn't taking anything else at that time either.
I did have a problem with the lyrica because it messed with my birth control method and I became pregnant and miss carried before I even knew what was up. Ever since then I have not wanted to take it but my pain doc thinks it will help me.
Does anyone out there take Lyrica? What has your experiences been with it? I've heard about weight gain and I'm told that I can't gain weight because my leg won't stand an extra 30 or 50 pounds. Does it really make everyone gain weight?
I just want to know more about it. I'm now taking 90 mg time release tabs of morphine along with hydrocodine and soma everyday.My pain doc thinks that since I'm getting pain relief now that maybe I will see more of a difference with the lyrica now.Any advice would be great.Thanks ahead of time.
Stay warm,
