I started on Lyrica today. It will be a 5 day ramp-up period, and will work at some point between 1 and 4 weeks in. The exciting thing about it is that it is designed specifically for nerve pain. I'm starting at 11lbs below goal, so I'm keeping an eye on my weight. If I get over goal, I may have to scrap this particular med. It's very expensive, but will be worth it if it works. Wish me luck. This is step 1 in trying to better manage my pain.
