  • From this study (7 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.
