Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 years ago):
I have Behcet's Disease and suffer all-over joint pain. My doctor thought it may be worth trying Lyrica, and I have noticed some relief. However, my breasts are quite painful - it is difficult to lay on my stomach when sleeping because it hurts - and if anything bumps me in the chest, it really hurts!
