I recently found out that i have Fibromyalgia and i am on lyrica. This medication seems to help. My dose has been upped now and i am getting bad joint pain in my knees and fingers, my knuckels feel like thier on fire and is very painful when i first wake up and for about 1-2 hours after. It's painfull to bend my fingers. I have major swealing in my fingers and the tips of my fingers are numb, but that happened before the lyrica, it just got worse now with the lyrica. The other side effect i have with the lyrica is trouble sleeping, if i take my night dose at the right time i will be able to get to sleep.
I was wondering if anyone elese is on lyrica? And what thier experiance is with it.
I also have a back injury from 2000. My L4/L5, SI JOINTS, And of last summer BULGING DISK.
