I had a ADEFx2 Cervically in 99, I am feeling terriable muscle spasms and pain that my narcotics dont help with in my back (the muscle along the spine that works the shoulder). I dug out my old med books from school and found it was C5-6 which that's the one that the doc drilled the foramen and cut the nerve, and then placed a tittanium iimplant from C5-C7. HELP..this neuralgia has taken over my life now, I cannot even drive; much less sleep. This is misery. I've passed on the Neurontin due to side affects in the past. Is Lyrica really worth it? I could stand to put on 40 lbs
RRTlady, I do not take any meds for depression, however, I was taking Lyrica for 8 days... had to quit today. Lyrica made my legs/feet swell, also having bad muscle cramping. From what I have read, yes Lyrica causes weight gain. May be the right med for you, though. I know the horrible pain of neuropathy, so I hope and pray you will feel better soon!!! Keep your chin up, lady! sweetlemon
I dont have anything good to say about lyrica its mostly for fibromyalsia. As far as the muscle spasms go soma is the absolute best if you want my opinion. I would discontinue the lyrica find a pain management and neourologist and see if you can find something new to take for the nerve pain and get you some soma for those spasms RRTlady.
