I've been taking Lyrica since February and have gained weight :::waaaaaaaaa::::::; however, the strange thing for me is, I have no appetite, I don't even feel hunger pangs. Many times I go all day without eating anything, and forget about it, because I never feel hungry at all. Taking the Lyrica is the only explanation I can think of at this time as to why I keep gaining weight. But I have no idea why, if i've lost my appetite. I haven't even had any desire for any sweets or fatty foods at all. I tried researching this over the weekend and found it can increase appetite, so one might eat more, and/or it can cause bloating. Today I realize I must have alot of bloat (and my steroid bloat never went away, no wonder why). After taking my foot/ankle brace off today, I noticed this huge long lump around my shin, which was smooshy. Then I realized it was where my brace had been closed at the top all day. That was 3 hours ago, and the swelling is still there on my leg, even though i've had my feet up for a while.
