Was taking Lyrica and after two weeks on 30mg pills it caused weakness in my right leg to the point of me sliding to the floor. Leg just gave away. ALso, have two small sores that appeared on my second toe. Toe turning red. Have appointment with doctor to see how bad this is... Would like to try Gabapentin, but just can't afford anymore side effects. Have the shingles in my right eye and the pain is constant and seems nothing I have taken so far is relieving this awful pain.
