Is anyone taking Lyrica? Is it working for you? Do you have any side effects. My doctor prescribed it after a relapse 6 weeks after a microscopic lumbar laminectomy. He wants a third opinion on my newest MRI (radiologist says it's scar tissue, doctor thinks it's a reherniation) and is hoping it'll relieve my pain and maybe not have to do a fusion. So far it has made the tips of my fingers & toes numb and my mouth very dry.
