Most days my fibromyalgia is so bad I can't stand it. I keep it bottled up inside me because i know my family gets tired of hearing me complain. I only complain to my family... the outside world doesn't even know the pain I am in everyday. This is my second attempt at Lyrica. I stopped taking it because I didn't fee any relief from it. My doctor told me I had to keep taking it and then he would increase the dosage. But I feel I am having side effects from this medication. In the morning when I wake, my hands and feet are swollen, i can't even make a fist in the mornings. What else is out there?
