Went through three months of extreme burning and pain in legs. Eventually, doctor prescribed Vicodin which helped minimally. Pain decreased to make my life bearable but still had some pain and numbness in one foot in particular and burning in legs which I te ... Show Full Comment

Be aware of side effects. First week I was on this med, I felt great relief from severe nerve pain in my feet and hands. When my dose was increased I started having extremely bad reactions.

I thought maybe it was a dream but when I had another episod ... Show Full Comment

I would think that if it has done this so far for me then within 6 months to a year I should not be feeling all the pain that I do right now. I have found out through the doctors that when I was on a particu ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I had lumber spinal fusion on 11/06, since then I have been taking Lyrica for nerve pain from a damaged spinal cord which was the reason for surgery, I get pulses going down to my toes which feel like hot water was pour onto it. I also take Percocet 10/325mg if the pain gets too strong. overall Lyrica does calm down the nerve spikes.
