Discussions that mention lyrica

Back Problems board

Well, one day after my injection and the nerve pain is actually worse than it was before I went. Prior to the injection yesterday the Lyrica was keeping the nerve pain under control. Not so today :mad: . The doc said I could go to work today and I only did 4 hours of sedentary work (with some walking). The nerve pain is down my leg into the foot again. I called the office and his nurse said that it takes up to 72 hours for the injection to work. But should it be worse?? She didn't answer that one! Has anyone else had this happen? Did the injection eventually work? I'm hoping the injection was not in vain, I want to feel better so badly! My daughter is getting married in just over 3 weeks and I need to feel better!
