My doctor just prescibed it to me. I have never heard of this application for this drug.

I am taking Lyrica due to a herniated disc because it is pinching some nerves. The Lyrica has made a HUGE difference in my life, but that is because Lyrica is for nerve pain. I've had some crazy doctor tell me "all pain is nerve pain. Pain is from the nerves, therefore Lyrica will work" (which unfortunetly isn't entirely true. Nerves CARRY the pain signal, but nerve pain is very different than other pains). I have Sciatica running down both of my legs because I have a nerve root pinched on each side of the vertebrae from the herniated disc material. If you have any nerve pinching of some sort, I really believe Lyrica will help you.
