Hello, I am new to this forum. Although I am not yet diagnosed, I strongly suspect I have fibromyalgia. I've had migraine headaches intermittently for the past 14 years, triggered mostly by changes in air pressure, and relieved (thank God) by Imitrex (sumatriptin). Two years ago I was prescribed Lyrica for pain related to degenerative disc disease and arthritis in the lumbar spine, as well as some radiating pain and numbness in my legs and feet. The migraines became much less frequent while I was taking Lyrica, and there seemed to be some improvement in the pain and numbness in my lower extremities, but I didn't care much for the weight gain/fluid retention and poor balance I experienced. I attempted to stop taking the Lyrica a couple of times, but felt terrible. Since I was still working, I resumed the drug just to get by. I recently retired, and took three months to taper off the Lyrica gradually. I am finally off the drug, lost the weight, but now find myself with chronic intermittent musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, and more frequent migraines. I will be seeing my doctor in a couple of days, and will request a referral to pain management.
