Pregabalin :: Limbs Aching And A Banging Headaches

Apr 26, 2015

So I'm on 4x75mg twice a day, still sleeping but the day does is a nightmare. I'm exhausted all the time, limbs aching and a banging headache. I honestly think the pain now is worse now then without the pills but I get to sleep 8hrs a night and need that. What to do? I'm seeing the neurologist at the start of June and I'm going to let him know the side effects and worried he will change my prescription because anything new might not let me sleep. I know there's no answer to it, just thought I would share and maybe someone has had the same experience

Pregabalin :: Successfully Stopping It

i have been on Pregablin for 6 years  now. I'm an amputee and suffer badly with phantom pains. I want to stop taking them but fear not only the phantom pains becoming unbearable but also how I may react on other levels. I take 600mg daily. My memory has been badly affected as well as my concentration levels and I feel constantly tired. Has anyone on here sucessfully come off pregablin? I feel that I am a spectator watching my life pass by and all my emotions are very flat. Hoping someone can help me out with an answer.

Sciatica :: Pregabalin And The Diazepam

I just want to get a feel of the pain differences... from, nah it's not so bad to how I am suffering .. where I cannot sit or stand, I am just laid flat, and have been for the last week. I'm on diazepam twice a day, pregabalin twice a day, Naproxen twice a day and paracetamol, And have just come off morphine.

I'll be upping my pregabalin in 3 days and the diazepam. .. I have never felt pain like it. My husband had to dress my bottom half, he has to help me in and out of the shower, and be around to make sure I don't slip..

I've been referred to the spine clinic who are ringing on 3rd Dec for a phone assessment. . They will then get me in for a scan.

I also have a bulging disc at L4... that didn't help either!

Pregabalin And Sertraline - Diminished Libido - No Sex Desires

have been on Pregabalin and Sertraline for a combined issue of rapid cycling bipolar and Acute anxiety disorder. Whilst The meds keep things under control 60 per cent of the time, ( another story ) it is starting to get in the way of my sex life.

Without being crass, I'm sure a lot of men would love to be able to have sex for hours and not copulate, and when it first started I was of the same opinion , however, when you meet someone you really like and want to share intimate times with I'm finding this is becoming a problem.

Pregabalin :: 600 Mg - Blurred Vision Side Effects

I'm currently on 600mg Pregabalin for anxiety, and it seems to be helping a little. The only side effects I seem to get is blurred vision and a little bit of tiredness. The tiredness doesn't bother me, as before taking this med I really struggled to sleep.. so this actually helps me a little.

Does anyone else get blurred vision?

Depression :: Mirtazapine -> Pregabalin -> Lofepramine - Nothing Worked

Have lost lots of time on medication that has not helped this year. From start of year have had depression/anxiety issues, for a time was on Mirtazapine, and then also Pregabalin. Things got worse and dose was upped of Mirt, progressively until we tapered me off it and moved me on to Lofepramine. The Preg/Life seemed to interact with negative side effects physically and I ran down the Preg, with no negative impact. So for a while was on Lofepramine only and I seem to have neither improved nor got disastrously worse, but have still really found the negative feelings a challenge. Sleep was patchy, but slowly improving, mornings though not as bad as when on the Mirt were still slow and tricky. I'm condensing months of this here. Sorry if its a bit of a brief summary.

The upshot was for a few weeks I was reduced down to half a 70g Lofepramine, and although things were still difficult my judgement was they were not particularly doing much to help step up from the mood I have had for quite some time now. So for 4 days I stopped it altogether. Now I have really struggled the last 2 mornings and have often been under a cloud. I think partly this could be just paranoia about stopping, but I gave in and took the decision to step the Lofepramine back up again and started on 70mg again today. At this point I am not really sure what to do and maybe need to reassess again with the doctor. Its probably fair to say Lofepramine may have helped more than anything else I have tried this year but I am not convinced it does enough.

So considering options. Have not yet gone down the road of an SSRI, so Sertraline, Escitalopram, or what or maybe I should have stayed off Lofepramine for longer to get a better view of whether I am just getting over some withdrawals from it and needed to persist.

Pregabalin, Fluoxetine Withdrawal - Mirtazapine Symptoms

I have been taking fluoxetine on and off for roughly 3 years.  I was put on them following the death of my premature baby, I had turned to alcohol as a coping mechanism for 4 years when I finally admitted defeat and tried antidepressants..

However, My doctor and I came to the conclusion about 4 months ago that the fluoxetine was not working, we noticed the pattern that a week before my period I was still becoming suicidal, anxious, withdrawn and emotionally unstable (longer periods without alcohol have enabled me recognise my symptoms better).

We decided I needed to be treated for the anxiety and I was prescribed 150mg of pregabalin at night and beta blockers as and when needed for the anxiety..

A month ago my doc recommended that I reduce from 20mg of fluoxetine daily to one every other day, however, I stupidly just stopped them!

Since this I stopped sleeping, became severely anxious and withdrawn, began having panic attacks, been snappy, angry, had headaches, felt like i've had flu, extreme lows etc.

Bcus of this I stopped the pregabalin as well as I thought these symptoms were bcus of them, as it was the only thing id been taking and it had been 4 weeks since stopping the fluoxetine so I thought that the fluoxetine couldn't be causing any problems, as it would be out of my system and the symptoms did not start immediately after stopping the fluoxetine.

So, last Sunday I was extremely suicidal, depressed etc, a friend took me to the doc on Monday who prescribed me mirtazapine 15mg for the first 5 nights (to help me sleep) then 30 mg a night thereafter.

last night after my second dose I slept for 16 hours!! I awoke today feeling shaky, tired, clumsy, weak, blurred vision, spaced out etc so I called my doc who has advised me to stop the mirtazapine as I was having a bad reaction and restart the fluoxetine as I may be having withdrawals!!

I feel like im back to square one (back on the fluoxetine) which doesn't even work!! I dont know who I am anymore, whether im withdrawing, actually anxious or goodness knows what.  I don't want to be on any meds anymore bcuz I dont like the side affects but I also can't continue like this....

Heart :: At Night Vibrating, Short Of Breath, Aching

For a couple of years now I've been having weird behaviour, episodes, happening with my heart. I've had a heart murmur since I was a teenager, caused by hyperthyroidism that went undiagnosed for too long, so heart issues for me aren't new, but this is different. They seem to happen primarily at night, I wake up feeling short of breath, my heart feels like it's vibrating more than beating, my chest and limbs ache, especially my arms, but it's not a stabbing pain, just feels like really tense muscles. It leaves me feeling the next day like I have a cat sitting on my chest and very tired, and often within a couple of days I notice splinter haemorrhages on my nails, up to 6. I've had numerous tests, ecgs, an echo, week long ecg, stress test, thyroid test, iron test, MRI. Nothing has come back conclusive, I've been told it's just a heart murmur, that it's probably just anxiety (then why is it hitting me when I'm sleeping? and since when does stress cause splinter haemorrhages?), that splinter haemorrhages are nothing are not proof of anything. A bit of background, I'm almost 40, it's been happening for 2 years, 6 months after I got a copper coil, 3.5 years after I gave birth, I've had hypothyroidism for 5 years, but had hyperthyroidism up to 3 years before that, I have a strong family history of heart disease on father's side, (but I don't have the high blood pressure they did, I do have high cholesterol though, but not severely) and low iron on my mother's (I've been taking supplements since a test many years ago found me low on this). This seems to happen when I have my period, but not with every period, and does pass, but eating a poor diet and little exercise also seem to effect it. Anyone have any ideas? Mine have been: low iron, thyroid storms, Prinzmetals angina, cholesterol floating around my body, a blood clot condition causing small clots to float around my blood periodically affecting my heart, lupus, or, my body reacting badly to the copper coil

Vasectomy :: Soreness, Stinging, Aching And Lancing Pain

I had a vasectomy about a year ago and have never previously had problems in this area.

the operation was ok and suffered tolerable discomfort for a few weeks.

About 3 months after the operation I had an infection in my testicles, cleared up by antibiotics. The doctor said it was not connected to the vasectomy which I found difficult to believe given I had never had a problem previously.

Six months later and I have been getting swelling in the area below the pubic hair, intermittently soreness, stinging, aching, lancing pain usually when I move about. It is alleviated quite quickly by lying down, hot water bottle on the area. The doc said unconnected to the vasectomy again but when pressed is conceding could be scar tissue?
