You're not kidding. I had the same problem with Gabapentin. Now with Lyrica I'm getting swollen. The pain in my hands is unbelieveable. I blame it on the meds too. The Neurologist that gave it to me says to ask my primary for a water pill. He wanted me to increase to 3 per day. Have not done yet. I have low Potassium so I doubt I will get a water pill.
