Has anyone else been prescribed this and did it make it any better? Just a brief background, a year ago I had a C4-C6 laminectomy to remove a golf ball size tumor from within my spinal cord. My arms and legs were jerking uncontrollably, that is what made me go to a doctor.
Since then, I have had numbness on my right side. Then, a year to that day, my arms started jerking again and my neck pain was becoming unbearable. After 3 doctors visits, I got a consensus I needed spinal fusion surgery to put back some support in my neck that the laminectomy took out. In October, I had a C3-C6 spinal fusion. The pain in my neck was gone immediately, and for a brief time, I got feeling back on my right side. the numbness has returned, but it is something I will have to live with. I have extensive damage to my spinal cord from the tumor, but am able to function.
so, back to the lyrica. My arms and legs are jerking again, and my doctor says it is from the damage done to my spinal cord and it is something I will deal with for the rest of my life. so, he prescribed the lyrica to help calm the nerves. has anyone else experienced this?
