Discussions that mention lyrica

Back Problems board

I had my visit with the pm doctor today. It went well, he was very nice, as always, and answered my questions, was warm and understanding. Nothing like my surgeon! He said he has some concern over the pain, numbnes, and weakness in my left leg, but his hope is with pt, and time it will get better. He is going to see me in 30 days so basically we are in a wait and see pattern.
He put me on a medication called Kadian and Percocet for breakthrough pain, plus said I can try Lyrica for the nerve pain despite what others have told me about the interaction between Lyrica and Topamax.
So, I feel better mentally today anyhow, at least I feel like I have a doctor on my side, looking out for me.
