... Cheryl, My husband takes 200 mg of Lyrica (along with a lot of other meds. He counted yesterday, and takes 12 different medications--not all for RSD--some for cholesterol, blood pressure, etc.) 750 mg is a lot! We have had the opposite problem; my husband sleeps all day. He is trying to reset his clock. The Strattera is really helping him stay awake, so the 12th med is... (12 replies)

... Hi Cheryl, nice to hear from you. My husband's pain is increasing. He said tonight that the burning pain is constant in both feet/ankles. The stabbing pain is in one at the moment. We see the doctor (I always go, too) on Friday. We were talking about asking to increase his Lyrica (for the burning pain). Taking the scooter on the plane is really easy. You drive it up to...

... I have to get to work each day and I know if I don't take one I'll be in more pain later. The pain is the only thing that lets me know I am in control. I am on Lyrica and I know it is holding a lot of it back. I was a "TOMBOY" as a child so have fallen on my knees a lot. Have noticed in the last week or so the burning pain. ... (11 replies)
... Their website was the first I went to. I've looked into getting the med and I don't qualify for anything at all. Hubby makes $1,018 too much for me to get it free from the company and there is no other program that would help me get it low cost. It sucks but we're a class of working poor. We don't qualify for any help from anyone but yet we live from paycheck to paycheck... (16 replies)
... Karen, I use to work for a drs office before I got RSD. Your DR can call the Reps if he really wanted to.. We use to call all the time and tell them if we needed more of something. Just a thought.. Michelle 1 (16 replies)
... I live in Florida. I was just at the doc on Tuesday and the few samples she had given me at my last appointment 3 months ago were all that they had. It was 6 bottle of 30 pills. She says they just wait for the company to send the more samples but from what she said it's not on a regular basis. I still have 2 bottles from the last time and she told me to hold on to them and as... (16 replies)

... Hi Ladybug, I too am curious about pain pumps. My husband has RSD in his right hand and now he is starting to have RSD type pain in his back. We are wondering if this pain in his back is from the Spinal Cord Stimulator he had implanted in February. Or maybe the cervical epidural he had 2 weeks ago. Not sure. He is in a lot of pain. He takes, lyrica, cymbalta, celebrex,... (5 replies)
... It really works for me. Keeps the pain at about a 4 to 5. I've been on it since the middle of April. The lower doses do not have many side effects..........when the dose goes up..........the swelling blossems, and it hurts! My skin has lost it's stretch from the RSD, so I look like a piece of balloon art. I also notice strange "tingling" sensations on the tip of my tongue, my... (16 replies)

The marcaine was 2 weeks ago...he was diganosed with RSD in March 2006. He nearly amputated his ring finger in a snowblower at work in Feb. 06. I know, I know...who puts their finger in a snowblower? Had he known there was blade in that... (14 replies)
