Discussions that mention lyrica

Back Problems board


I just wanted to ask if they have given you meds for nerve pain like neurotin or lyrica? I am taking cymbalta and neurotin for the nerve pain and it really had helped but did take a while to build up in my system. I just don't want to have to keep taking all kinds of pills forever, I also take vicodin/lorcet for back pain and xanax for my other nerves.

I do know someone who had great relief with selective nerve root block. All I know is every injection I've had hurt, and I dont' know why they can't sedate us for this crap....my solution is wake me up when its over :)

I hope you get to feeling better, just keep your hopes high!!

PS those steroid packs make me feel insane I hate taking them, my hubby hates me taking them to.
