... Hey skooze...Just an update on the feeble I went back to my PMD today for a follow up to figure out a new plan, it turns out in the meantime she had consulted with some other Dr's who also have been prescribing Lyrica and they all seem to be agreeing that maybe the dosing was increased more than my body could handle (although i wasnt started on nor increased more...

... Skooze, Where did you read this information? It appears that many of us, if not all use some form of oxycodone. This kind of makes sense now, I have stopped taking the Lyrica and no more little green men (halucinations,lol) and no more pounding heart, etc... What will they come up with next for us to be guinnea pigs for??? I will probably try it ya never know what will... (27 replies)
... H Claire--I just did some research on this. It says that you should not take this drug if you are taking any narcotics (such as oxycodone) tranquilizers, or mediicine for anxiety. You may have a higher chance for dizziness & sleepiness. Well I just flunked 2 out of 3 on the med test. If you take too much--go to the nearest ER room :eek: I have never seen this on any drug...

... Hi Skooze, The funny thing is I dont have arthritis, never did...I was started on 75 mg twice a day and after a week increased to 150 mg twice a day, I tolerated that for almost 3 weeks before the side affects I previously described showed up. And you are right, unfortunately there is no magic pill out there for us RSDers, however, this seemed to be the most promising... (27 replies)
... I was on the Amrix, and it works great. All of it's info says short term use only and when it quit working, oh boy did it. I felt like I had guitar strings breaking in my legs.

... Hi Hubbard, Thanks. Any specific questions? I really just told you about it because I wanted you to know it is possible to lose weight without exercising. As I said, I cut out all the bad foods and kept my carbs to around 120 grams. If you have any specific questions, let me know. Sharon :) (27 replies)

... Hi Hubbard, I've lost about 40 pounds in the past year or so. I did it with diet exercise. Because I have Type 1 diabetes, I have a little added incentive that people who don't have diabetes don't have, but it is possible. I did it predominantly through counting carbs and keeping them to a minimum, but not too low (I don't believe in that either). I eat about 120... (27 replies)
... :wave: Good Morning all, from the Motor City.... What a wild week-end we had here, with all the rain and wind. But, I count again my blessings that we are not like the poor folks who were hit by the Tornado Sunday divesting for them. :( Can you begin to imagine what it must be like to lose a family member or friend so suddenly and then on top of that...
