has lyrica caused any numbness for anyone?

the drug lyrica has been working for my pain pretty well lately, the thing is my ring finger is starting to feel "numb", its been that way for 3 weeks now. i asked the doctor and she said it might be a side effect of the drug, but, im worried about what ELSe will go numb. has anyone experienced any numbness with this drug?

Re: has lyrica caused any numbness for anyone?

I have been taking Lyrica for about a year now and haven't found numbness to be a side effect...for me...however it has really helped with the neurological pain..I have gone from 30mg of oxycontin twice a day down to 1/2-1 percocet twice a day and that's usually for back pain from a car accident injury...
I do have all over pain still but definitely doesn't knock me down like it did before..I didn't have success with Gabapentin but the lyrica seems to help..I just found out I have osteoporsis and a high Parathyroid level..I'm hoping that it is the Parathyroid activity that is causing my bone pain and arthralgias, neuralgias and any other -algia I would be nice to have surgery and feel 'normal' again...
Anyway the only problem I've had with both lyrica and gabapentin (less so with lyrica) is if I have been really active and I come home and 'crash', exhausted then I get 'twitchy' almost like the heebie jeebies in arms and legs and hands and it quits about half and hour after I take a some days I take 2 capsules and some days 3 doses..
