Lyrica Headache Causes and Reviews


Almost everyone has had a Headache. Headache is the most common form of pain. It's a major reason people miss days at work or school or visit the doctor.

The most common type of Headache is a tension Headache. Tension Headaches are due to tight muscles in your shoulders, neck, scalp and jaw. They are often related to stress, depression or anxiety. You are more likely to get tension Headaches if you work too much, don't get enough sleep, miss meals, or use alcohol.

Other common types of Headaches include migraines, cluster Headaches, and sinus Headaches. Most people can feel much better by making lifestyle changes, learning ways to relax and taking pain relievers.

Not all Headaches require a doctor's attention. But sometimes Headaches warn of a more serious disorder. Let your health care provider know if you have sudden, severe Headaches. Get medical help right away if you have a Headache after a blow to your head, or if you have a Headache along with a stiff neck, fever, confusion, loss of consciousness, or pain in the eye or ear.

Lyrica Headache Reviews

Thu, 24 Feb 2011
Severe Headaches every other day, and normally don't have Headaches. These were so severe I had to lay in bed. Plus dizziness.
Thu, 10 Mar 2011
After a little over 2 weeks on Lyrica I awoke one morning with blurred vision. It has been almost 2 weeks and even after stopping the Lyrica I still can not focus my eyes. I am told that my eyes are focusing in and out and if I try hard enough I get double vision. I also have severe Headaches that I never had before and nausea. Leg and back muscle pain, worse than the Fybro ever caused. I am not able to work or function normally. I am severly depressed and moody. I feel this medicine ruined my life! I would never recommend anyone take it! It's not worth your sight!
