Me and Lyrica
Monday, June 4, 2018
First, what Lyrica helps, cut and paste from the website:
Peripheral and central neuropathic pain: Lyrica is used to treat long-term pain caused by nerve damage. A variety of diseases can cause peripheral neuropathic pain, such as diabetes or shingles. The pain may be described as hot, burning, pulsating, sudden, stinging, convulsive, aching, tingling, numbness or as a small needle stick in the skin. Peripheral and central neuropathic pain can also be associated with changes in mood, sleep disturbances, fatigue, and may affect physical and social functions and overall quality of life.
Yes, that’s what I have. A little hell every morning before the Lyrica works. It takes about 30 minutes. I take 150mg three times a day. It makes life “something easier” to say the least. Before Lyrica I had a tough hell for several years. As a result, I isolated myself because of the. pain. There was not much I could do in social gatherings, it was mostly Christmas Eve and a couple of days with a family I have good contact with.
Now I’m painless for many hours every day. And I have have a surplus that I have not had for at least 5 years. It’s not just the surplus, but I’ve got back the creativity and an my idea bank that I had before the disease. It’s even more, I eat more and enjoy good food and drink. So life has come back to me.
Must write more about Lyrica’s behavior on me. It’s a bit early yet. The medications I tried earlier worked quite good but then after a few months they stopped working. It has been two months now, so I hope this will work for good now.
