From this study (3 years ago):
The month I started Lyrica... a few days or short week(s) after I was diagnosed with herpes. It shocked me and I was hoping to find a possible connection, but I might be out of luck. =/
From this study (4 years ago):
Lately I have MAJOR loss of cordination, pain shooting up from my hands to my elbows.... I am falling and tripping, unable to keep my balance. I am sick to my stomach all of the time. I throw up any solid foods. I have the runs, and major suicidal behaviours, I have been writing my goodbye letters to my family, saving up my pills, as well as buying more off of the street in order to kill myself. I cry constantly and would rather pee myself than crawl out of bed... What is wrong with me? I need help. Nothing but hopelessness and pain is all I feel inside my head and throughout my body... someone help me.... My mom just gave me some Lyrica hoping that I can replace my lamictal with that and that it will help me not feel like this I am leaving this trying to get more information
