Fibromyalgia Pain
twilightchick74 posted:
I had a lot of pain in my lower back. The doctor diagnosed it as Fibromyalgia. He prescribed lyrica which works really well. I still have the fatigue but then pain is almost gone. I also like icyhot naturals.

That's good for you.

Did you know that there is a Web MD support community for fibromyalgia?

I reported several of these posts hours ago and replied to one of them. This is terrible, but what is worst is that WebMD has not deleted these spams yet. I am very, very disappointed.

I agree. I fear most for new members who may think that he's legit.

Please delete his posts.

Hi twilightchick74,

I am really pleased that the lyrica has been helpful for you.

I just want to let you know that about 4 years ago my pain mgt. dr. prescribed lyrica for me and I gained a lot of weight. Before starting that medicine I weighed about 115 lbs. and then I gained so much weight and it was 178 lbs.! I am not kidding either. Just be careful if you notice that you start to gain a lot of weight. If you do gain the weight then I would suggest that you talk to your doctor.

Good Luck!

Just because he was wearing a white lab coat in his photo?

He could also be a lab tech, I would not assume that though. Maybe he is a doctor in real life.

I would not email anyone I met on line, but that is just me.

Take care, Annette

I take gabapentin 800 mg once a day in the evening. I tried Lyrica, but it did not work any better than the gabapentin, so I went back to it. They are chemically very similar drugs.

I have been losing weight slowly but steadily, I had a checkup today and weighed 179.4, the least I have ever weighed as an adult. I was up to 254 lbs. at the largest. No change in diet, just a bit more exercise every day.

If you start to gain weight, let your doctor know right away.

Take care, Annette
