I was recently put on lyrica and I truly believe it is causing me more pain. I have severe labor like pain in both legs and back, I even have muscle like pains. I look like I have a severe flu. My daughter was shocked when she looked at me this morning....She said Mom what going on with you your yellow. I called doc. well you never get your NS it's always some phone police that tells you I will give him the message (rude I might add). I can't even walk at all now due to this pain. I am back to the first week. This is 5 weeks post op now. At least before it was just nerve pain down one leg (reason for Lyrica). I am so much worse off than before the surgery. I feel like I doomed myself to a life of hell. Please someone let me know if this could be Lyrica. I am hoping it is. Thanks for all your support and I am so sorry any of you are in pain and even on this forum. I don't wish back pain on anyone. Take care all.
