Has Anyone Tried The Nerve Med Lyrica (pregabalin)? If So Did It Work For You? Side Effects?

Has Anyone Tried The Nerve Med Lyrica (pregabalin)? If So Did It Work For You? Side Effects?

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. It's specifically for nerve damage from spinal cord injuries (I have a herniated disc & either pinched or entrapped sacral nerves).

Since my flight from Hawaii to Portland for my surgery I've been having stabbing pain in my SI joint as well as spasms in my… read more

Has Anyone Been On Cymbalta?

Has Anyone Been On Cymbalta?

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.

Leg/hip Pain Remedies? Experience With Cymbalta?

Leg/hip Pain Remedies? Experience With Cymbalta?

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?

Vaginal Bleeding After Bowel Movement

Vaginal Bleeding After Bowel Movement

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

Chronic Pain Medicine- Exparel

Chronic Pain Medicine- Exparel

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.

Yeah thats weird. I do know some people take gabapentin for just IC/Endo pain though although it desensitizes nerves it acts just like a pain pill but it builds in your system so you need to take it… read more
