Hi, my name is Kimmi. Among other issues, I've fibro, migraines, & arthritis. Dr tried Lyrica. Worked beautifully for pain but put me in a severe mental fog & ruined my eyesight. I've tried many western meds, any holistic suggestions? Ideas? I'm open to most anything!
One thing is be sure you're taking a good multivite and vit D. Magnesium helps if you take it before bed. There aren't allot of things that get rid of the pain totally. I would give anything for one pain free day. I take gabapentin. I had trouble with lyrica like you did. I find the gabapentin helps me better then the lyrica did.
I've not tried this as I have a pretty good medication for my migraines, but I thought I'd pass it along since you asked for holistic remedies. I've been told that Feverfew, taken on a regular basis, is helpful in reducing the number and intensity of migraines. You can find it in the vitamin and supplements section. I hope it helps you!
