Hello Sam, I saw your post on Lyrica, and I just had to get back to you. I was wondering how long you have been on Lyrica. I have been on it for about 3 years now. Originally, my Neouro., put me on it for my Migraines, now they say it works for the body pain as well. I have been taking 150 mg. 2 to 3 times a day now. When I first started taking this med I thought it was a wonder drug. It helped my migraines almost instantly. I am finding now it helps sometimes, I guess, but I still have alot of pain. I get alot of pain in my neck and shoulder area as well. Do you feel your pain is in the muscles or joints? I find it is hard to tell sometimes. My rheumatologist said, In Scleroderma you don't get body pain all over. Do you get pain all over or just in certain areas? My Doctors here in Washington are uncertain if I have Scleroderma now. In California my rheumatologist, Gastro. and Gyno. all agreed that I have Scleroderma. So I don't know. I have had quite a bit of weight gain from the Lyrica as well. Thanks and take care.
