Discussions that mention lyrica

Back Problems board


Gosh guys! I just am sitting here trying to be strong and not bawl my eyes out. Something has not felt right for weeks since that stupid dog incident. I can't even tell my hubby.....I have to digest it so what do I do run to my cyber friend and cry on your shoulders.

Sage, I will be calling my doctor first thing Monday if not before.

Emily, my dc are into music. My dd has recorded a cd already. Her guitar teacher has a recording studio. She plays solo and with a ensemble. She has played in front of children's church over 300 children and is preparing to play the offeratory song in front of adult church over 2,000 adults. I am so excited for you and pray that you can go tomorrow.

Before surgery, I had pain before bad weather. Hopefully that is part of the problem.

Clover - My doctor has me on 150 lyrica 2 x daily and I am thinking we need to switch. I have soma and flexeril. I do not like the flexeril because it knocks me out completely. Maybe that is what I need. We had discused
elvail and maybe we need to give that a whirl. Never heard of hit and ice. Might be worth a try.

Yvette have you used the caspian cream yet?

Thanks guys I just needed to spit this out.
I am feeling very bad. My sciatica is flared up and now my back feels like someone wacked it with a 2 x 4. I have taken my 2 percocets, flexeril and lyrica. Hopefully it will kick in soon. This is the pits.
Okay I guess I am the nurse today, to bad we can't all be together, I could get my walking in taking care of you guys.

I feel helpless to help my buddys!!!

Please don't give up guys, diet, you are still early in recovery and just started taking that lyrica, it takes a few weeks to build up in your system. Did you ask for the cymbalta to?

Shawley, I am sorry buddy, man I feel bad. I know you are really down right now, that cymbalta also took a couple of weeks to work. When is the appointment for the stimulator thing? I forgot sorry.

Why can't they kill that damn sciatic nerve?

Clover you to buddy...take it easy.

Okay so all three of you are on bed rest, I'm in charge, maybe I'll find a nurse with some demerol. Maybe we can get a group discount. :eek:

Shawley, Sorry about your friend, I know how it is, we are in pain, stressed. It sounds like you may have told him how you really felt, even though pissed and it coming out in anger. I have felt the same way, really let down by my so called friends.

Sounds like today might be the day we have shots instead of pina coladas.
Sorry buddys...praying for all three of you...love you guys...

[COLOR="Blue"]No but I might. I was given valium today maybe that will work.

[COLOR="blue"]I am about ready too.

[COLOR="blue"]Where is it???? When you need it???

[COLOR="blue"]This is so true and I am sure many of us have felt let down by our so called before back problem friends. I feel like you are my lifeline right now and the heck with all my other friends. Where have they been? But when someone is having a baby shower or having a party selling something, they call me?? Go figure. You at least listen to me and offer many words of wisdom. Thanks so much for being my true blue friends even if it is in cyberland only.
