As you know, I have had a great deal of trouble with my arms. I was uncertain if it involved my neck or it was the fibro. I had seen my doc twice. She put me on Lyrica, 300mg a day on the last visit. It seems to be making a real difference in my life. In the last day or so, I've regained some of the use of my right arm!!! It's not at 100% yet but it is better than it was!! I just wish my left arm would respond like the right one has. It still causes me terrible pain trying to use it. I try doing little things with it but its tough. I'll just have to keep hoping and praying that it will resolve itself some day soon.
You all have been so supportive and caring with your notes and emails. It means so much to me to know I have you all to turn to when things get rough. Thank you just doesn't seem enough.

Please note that somehow my question posted twice. I don't know how to remove it. Im sorry for the confusion.
I'm so glad to hear the Lyrica is helping you. My daughter was just (finally) diagnosed with fibro and the pm dr prescribed Lyrica. Now we're just waiting on insurance approval. They never want to pay for anything it seems. I've heard it has had good effect with those people who could tolerate it. So happy to hear that you're one of them! Please keep us posted on your progress.
I'm glad you're experiencing some relief regarding your arm(s). You're just about the only person who has said Lyrica works that I've heard of. I think Fibro can affect the limbs of the body. My friend, who has Fibro, is now in a wheelchair. She has lost the use of her legs. She's not sure if it's due to Fibro. Fibro has affected my legs. My legs hurt when I walk and I can't walk very far. Of course, it could be my obesity -- which comes from the psych meds I've been given for Bipolar Disorder w/psychosis. I figured out that psych meds have caused me to gain 130 pounds since I started being treated for Bipolar and Psychosis. I've been able to take some of this weight off, but not all. Anyway, that's really not answering your question. I'm sorry that I've gotten off the topic. I wish you well with regaining the use of your arm(s). Lyrica works for you and I'm glad.
