  • Do you have Marfan syndrome?

    I'm just wondering how you got this diagnosis?
  • hi and welcome to the forum! :H we are here to offer you support and answer what questions we can. i am sorry i do not have your problem but i do take Lyrica for sciatica and have found it very helpful. :D i do suffer from leg weakness in my left leg. at times it just gives out. ~X( i have fallen many times from this. i have heard of nothing to help and use a cane at times. sorry you are having this problem.. ~X( good luck as you seek relief. :D Jenny :)
  • I took lyrica before but find the cymbalta is helping the leg pain and weakness more as well as I sill take lyrica 150mg. I also use a cane and recently now use a walker that has a fold down seat to rest while taking a walk. Take care. Charry
