I've been on LYRICA a year and 4 months..taking 150 mg 2 x a day. I tried 3 times a day but had to back off because it made me toooo loopy. So after doing well with the pain I've began sinking back into some of the symptoms that lead me to start the LYRICA in the first place. 1. Pain all over, stiffness 2. Brain Fog 3. Burning pain in my hands and and toes. I'm wondering if I should discuss with my rheumy (whom I'm disappointed in right now for not prescribing pain meds) up'ing my dosage back up to 3 150 mg a day. I hesitate to do this because of the weight gain and getting used to the loopy side effects. Yet I'm terrified of how bad the pain and fog had gotten before. As I type this, my fingers and toes burn....I couldn't recall my address today and that scared me badly. I felt I've been going into a major flare because the stiffness and pain have been unrelenting. I'm wondering what's next after taking LYRICA over a year??? Is there ever a break or light at the end of this FM tunnel??
