Discussions that mention lyrica

Back Problems board


Just curious if you have been put on any meds for nerve irritation? Not talking about pain meds but actual meds for your nerve pain I believe Lyrica and am blanking on other names at the moment but I was on those to try and help with the fun known as sciatica! I am assuming you have talked to your Dr about the persistent pain. What did he/she have to say? I had a laminectomy done in January and luckily for me knock on a large hunk of wood I am pain free. Sorry to hear that your surgery didn;t go as well. I know my Dr told me if this didnt work I was going to have to have a fusion. My 2 cents are talk to your Dr again and explain what kind of pain you are having and see what he/she has to say before going to a chiro. You may just have an unstable spine and manipulating it may do more harm than good.
Best of luck, keep us posted and know I am thinking of you and wishing you well
