Discussions that mention lyrica

Back Problems board


I have it too. I have not fallen, but I have almost many times. I have numbness in my right calf and foot. Most of the time I can't feel the soul of my foot and sometimes it makes it feel like I am walking with something in my shoe. It does make it hard to walk sometimes, so I use a cane. I have not had surgery yet or have I had a discogram yet. I have had this numbness for 3 month now and itis about to drive me mad. I take Lyrica for the numbness, some days it works and other days it just takes the edge off the numbness, but it has helped with my walking alittle. My Doc says this happens because the nerve is pinched off and not firing the mucsle in my leg that causes the weakness.
I hate it, but I know it will get better with time and surgery.
