Hang in there chickie. the migraine isn;t a result of stopping Lyrica, is it? Man, that stuff has a laundry list of side effects longer than it's alleged benefits! I hope your doc gets you the meds you want soon.

At this point I honestly have no idea; migraines have been more frequent and harder to kill for a months now. But if the migraines are related to the tmj/shoulder pain being worse, and the neck pain which is new, that's probably due to the fibro. So he wanted me to try Lyrica at a low dose as it dulls nerve pain.

But last night I had an allergic reaction to my BPAL, then felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest for hours, and I think that is the Lyrica working out of my body still. Apparently that is toxic to me. Although it also works for a lot of people.

Also, I only took two doses of Lyrica, one Tuesday and one Wednesday. Per the 4-6 hour half life you'd think it would be gone. But apparently some people store it in fat cells almost immediately, so it takes time to work out of the system. I now suspect I'm one of those, and while I have very little fat left there's still that girly belly fat, etc.
