My endometriosis expert wants me to try a new nerve medication called Lyrica (pregabalin). If you've tried this, did it help with your pain? My most severe pain is actually in my sacroiliac joint & the muscles & ligaments around the joint.

I've been on 30 mg. of Cymbalta 1 a day for 10 days now & see no improvement. Does anybody know how long it usually takes?
One dr. wants me to try Cymbalta & I was wondering if anyone has taken it & what kind of side effects did you have? I'm afraid of new pills. I need one that doesn't make you gain weight or give you constipation. It is probably impossible to find one.
I've had sciatic type pain for ten years, only partially responsive to chiro/PT. Massage, heat/ice alternating, and LOTS of ibu used to help somewhat. Now it is becoming debilitating. I think endo might be culprit, but can't see excision specialist for consult until May, so surgery wouldn't be until even further out. Any suggestions? Has anyone used cymbalta/duloxetine for this kind of pain with any success?
I was increased to 60mg of Cymbalta every other day a couple weeks ago and I started to bleed, they told me to to back to 30mg until it subsided but I've continued to bleed since (for 2 weeks). It had stopped for a day and then I had a flexible sigmoidoscopy yesterday and instantly started gushing blood from my vagina. It stopped but now anytime I have a bowel movement I gush blood again. Help! Xox
Someone mention their doctor put them on “chronic pain medication”. I’d never heard of that before. I just found this one. It is available in the US, but I’m not sure where else. Has anyone used it? It’s a non-opioid pain medication. It’s called Exparel.
Will diet help stage 4 endo as I really do not want the hysterectomy and as I can't have hormones I've been told that it's my only real option, I'm 36.
