I was diagnosed with severe FIBROMYALGIA. I don't exactly agree with the diagnosis. Anyways, it WORKS!! I'm sooo excited about it and am hoping I will be able to get off all the other pain meds and anxiety meds too. However, already having anxiety (due to pain meds I believe, but doctors don't believe me) issues, they have gotten a lot worse since taking Lyrica. I'm hoping it will go away and that its just a temporary side effect, but am not sure. Can anyone help answer this for me? It wks for my pain and that's amazing! However I can't handle the extreme anxiety it causes, and I already take anxiety meds! And it doesn't even help at all. Please help. Hoping for good news.
