Hi, I am going to talk to my specalist next week about changing from Valium to Lyrica as I am getting jerking pain at night. Thankfully it is not every night but when I do get it I literally scream with the pain for a minute.
One second I am asleep and the next my knees are up to my chest and the pain only stops when I can relax them down.
I even get it if I sleep on my tummy, my body just seems to flip over in one go- something I could never usually do.
This has only been happening since surgery.
Anyway the thing that bothers me about what I have read about Lyrica is that it can cause weight gain. I am overweight already and cant afford to put on anything.
So - Is anyone taking Lyrica and NOT put on weight?
Sorry about the long post.
