Comments from related studies:
From this study (8 months ago):
I started taking Lyrica back in 2008, and started having Cushing-like symptoms the same year, but my doctors at the va thought it was related to a nodule that was found on the left adrenal gland around the same time. I have been bounced from specialist to specialist for years, and my labs come back normal almost every time; however, there is significant weight gain (even though I hepcat healthy and attempt to exercise), and I am growing again (at 36). Last time I checked I was 5'11.5 and a few months ago I was bed ridden with leg/knee pain. I am now 6'2 even.
From this study (9 months ago):
Nausea...sensitive to light/noise.. headaches/migraines ..pain in joints.. very weak..unstable on feet... fatigue..sweating..ringing ears...tingly feet and hands
