Discussions that mention lyrica

My neurologist tells me he thinks I have arachnoiditis that can be associated with fusion patients. Also I had two myleograms that were done years ago when the dye they used is suspected as being the cause of adhesive arachnoiditis (severe type). If you are having a myleogram make sure they are not using this older type dye.

Has anyone else been diagnosed with this condition? My fusion is 24 years old but for the last 18 years I have suffered with nerve pain. The last two years have been horrendous. I am currently being switched from neurontin to Lyrica. I have read that a lot of cases of non union are suspected to be due to arachnoiditis. My fusion is a solid one. Arachnoid one of the membranes that cover the spinal cord and brain.
