Started with problems urinating,very painfull ejackulation. At about 2 1/2 weeks left leg went completely numb no feeling at all on the front half of the leg all the way up to the knee. I used lyrica last year and had the same symtoms as Savella. Stopped using problems went away.

I have Fibro and have been taking this medication for 3 months. IT HAS GIVEN ME MY LIFE BACK! Pain is significantly reduced, energy is up and brain fog is much, much better. I had some mild side effects the first month taking this drug and on day 14 my blood pressure went way up. My BP had been borderline high for a couple of years so my Dr. put me on BP medication and now it is normal.

I've had fibro for 20 years & have taken a good amount of pain medicine. However, I've only been on savella for 9 days. I'm not exactly sure as what it is suppose to do. As of now it's doing nothing....
