surgery in the past and suffered a stroke in Sept. 09.She has had test for clots in the leg. blood flow studies, blood pressure checks of the legs with all the results coming back as normal along with a bone density test that didn't show any abnormalitiess. We need help in trying to manage this leg pain and her physician seems to be at a lost. My mom did a test dose(4 vdays) of Lyrica that did nothing. Can you help. Thank you for any assistance. Janice Wiggins
4 days is not long enough a test for lyrica as you can't start out on a high dose. You have to come up slowly with it. Opiates aren't much good for this type of pain and seeing that she is older I would think a doctor would stay away from opiates anyway. So I would give the Lyrica at least 2 weeks with a slow increase in dosage... Good luck..Dave
