I am really hesitant to add another drug to my daily routine. However, Cymbalta has not helped with my pain at all, as the Dr. thought it would. She wants me to add Lyrica to the mix now. I have constant excruciating pain down the sides of my legs and arms. It feels like the nerves are just sitting right at the surface. Just touching my skin hurts. Anyone on Lyrica and feel a difference? Any intolerable side-effects? I read that some people gain weight and get swollen ankles and feet. This is something I definitely do not need to get! Please, anyone, tell me good/bad so I can decide if I want to try this drug. Thank you.
