Re: Constant Flare, Pain Meds daily

I'm so round tight today ..every nerve in my back,legs,shoulders,arms are fighting each other..I was on Lyrica and about 2 weeks before coming off cymbalta I stopped it too. So, really don't know what was giving me the most relief. I do know that I'm having more anxiety since stopping the Cymbalta and going on Celexa. Deal with depression/anxiety. who know? I m just trying to stay sane...I feel like it wouldn't take much to put me over today..

I get that way when I get really tired. Maybe that's why neurontin did that to you. It will make you tired at first but the effect wears off as your body gets used to it. I always take it close to bedtime.

Sounds like you need to go cuddle up in your bed and take a long nap. Maybe you'll feel better tomorrow. Some days are always worse than other days. I didn't care so much for lyrica cause I didn't sleep after taking it and neurontin helps me with that problem, and it caused me muscle contractions for whatever reason, neurontin just helps my pain. My nerve sensations are still head strong.

I get that way also if I need to lay down. I know I'm pushing it when I get grumpy... The neurontin made me irritable all the time... Like I was pmsing all the time...

dwh how are you doing today?
I'm doing ok, better than I have in weeks but still sooo sore, hurting, ugh... I think taking the muscle relaxer again is helping...
