It's almost like a medical miracle.

Today I took my first dose of Lyrica.
Within two hours, I started to feel...Different.
 I haven't been this mobile and at this (very low) level of pain since I was about 8!

I actually started tearing up at one point, because for the first time since I remember, I felt normal.
My hope now is that this medication continues to help me, because so far, the change in my pain and attitude towards my life has been drastic.

To those of you who have yet to find a treatment that helps, keep your head up, you never know what's around that next corner. 


  1. YAY!!!
    I'm happy to hear you found something that helps.
    Keep us posted!

  2. I take Lyrica also although bizarrely not prescribed for the EDS but for the dreadful pain of PHN which I also have.

    I have been lucky that I have not had any of the side effects that some report and this in part was because my initial dose was very small and gradually increased.

    Good luck with continued efficacy and keep us posted.

    Kind regards from the UK.

  3. Yay! I like Lyrica too! (I had pretty good results with Topamax but I switched to Lyrica.)
