From this study (4 months ago):
I have had crohns disease since 1990 and was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis 3 years ago. I have osteoarthritis, fibromyalga, hypothyroid since 1980. I just recently started experiencing lightheadedness, dizziness, headaches,feeling faint and feeling as if i was going to be sick to my stomach all at the same time about 2 weeks ago. I am under a little stress, my cousin just passed away. I am also on 30 mg's of prednisone and have been since the end of April 2014
From this study (11 months ago):
When I went off Lyrica I smelled the most offensive odor ever! My brain identified it in my sleep as the smell of slime eels. I took the meds for only three months. But that smell surfaces now every time I smell bread warming or toasting. Even bread baked of unusual things and those in foreign countries I visit, trigger that smell. It makes me gag and then I can't eat the offending food. The original horrible smell lasted 3 days, gradually lessening until I could eat on the 3rd day. But the smell persists and I have been off the Lyrica for 2 months now.
From this study (12 months ago):
Symptoms have been going on for three years. Doctor's have done MRI's, CT's, Ultrasounds, and several lab test. They have yet to find any cause for the nausea, vomiting and dizziness. Only thing they have not tried is discontinuing some of the medicine.
