Lyrica Malaise Causes and Reviews
What is chronic fatigue syndrome?
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a serious, long-term illness that affects many body systems. Another name for it is myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). CFS can often make you unable to do your usual activities. Sometimes you may not even be able to get out of bed.What causes chronic fatigue syndrome?
Scientists don't know what causes CFS. There may be more than one thing that causes it. It is possible that two or more triggers might work together to cause the illness.Who is at risk for chronic fatigue syndrome?
Anyone can get CFS, but it is most common in people between 40 and 60 years old. Adult women have it more often that adult men. Whites are more likely than other races to get a diagnosis of CFS, but many people with CFS have not been diagnosed with it.What are the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome?
CFS symptoms can include
- Severe fatigue that is not improved by rest
- Sleep problems
- Post-exertional Malaise (PEM), where your symptoms get worse after any physical or mental activity
- Problems with thinking and concentrating
CFS can be unpredictable. Your symptoms may come and go. They may change over time - sometimes they might get better, and other times they may get worse.How is chronic fatigue syndrome diagnosed?
CFS can be difficult to diagnose. There are no tests for it, and other illnesses can cause similar symptoms. Your health care provider has to rule out other diseases before making a diagnosis of CFS. He or she will do a thorough medical exam, including
- Asking about your medical history and your family's medical history
- Asking about your current illness, including your symptoms. Your doctor will want to know how often you have symptoms, how bad they are, how long they have lasted, and how they affect your life.
- A thorough physical and mental status exam
- Blood, urine or other tests
There is no cure or approved treatment for CFS, but you may be able to treat or manage some of your symptoms. You, your family, and your health care provider should work together to decide on a plan. You should figure out which symptom causes the most problems, and try to treat that first. For example, if sleep problems affect you the most, you might first try using good sleep habits. If those do not help, you may need to take medicines or see a sleep specialist.
Strategies such as learning new ways to manage activity can also be helpful. You need to make sure that you do not "push and crash." This can happen when you feel better, do too much, and then get worse again.
Since the process of developing a treatment plan and attending to self-care can be hard if you have CFS, it is important to have support from family members and friends.
Don't try any new treatments without talking to your health care provider. Some treatments that are promoted as cures for CFS are unproven, often costly, and could be dangerous.

extreme weight gain 30lbs, sleepiness, insomnia when tried to decrease medication

I am a 27 year old male who has been on Lyrica for about a year now. I firmly believ Lyrica has lowered my IQ. My first month taking it I would walk into car doors and one I even fell in the shower. I have an Accounting degree and graduated with a 3.7 from a state university. I have complained about thr side effects to my wife my doctor and even my mother but nobody seems to think they are as profound as I. I know how fast I used to get things and how quick I was when it came to conversation. Now I have a hard time remembering things, like big words or people's names. I know I over compensate but others don't because I still sound intelligent. I know I'm haven't truly been dumbed down but I do have worries as you do that when I come off it nothing will change. I'm currently dealing with a bad doctor who prescribed me this among a few other things and has literally left town. So tomorrow I'll be searching for a doc to ween me off. The benefits were great but I was better off without thr meds. I'll be honest I've never felt a medicine so powerful but in such a weird way. It's like what I would assume light brain damage would be like. My wife now thinks I'm ADD. I'll report back if you'd like my weenin off. In my humble opinion I would have a talk with your doctor and maybe even get a secon opinion. Lyrica is a new drug but it's class isn't. The literature is all over the place on it right now but the patients all say what I'm saying and what you are reporting. I don't think a young man as your son should be on this. He won't remember high school if he does. I have had a hard time remembering yesterday with it. Hope this helps. Im praying I come out unscathed. I never thought I'd be one of those medicine law suit people but if this thing messes with me I wouldn't hesitate.

i'm trying to cut back after a 30lb weight gain, memory haze-loss, and feeling so dumb and having my eyes so blurry I can't read my books-, but I need this drug it helps my Fibromyalgia (FM), there has to be a happy medium I can't stand this I"ve been on the drug since it came out and I've been diagnosed with FM since it was acknowledged as a illness-for me '92 I related so much to FRM0084 when he spoke of "not knowing the bog words". It's easy to bluff with people for short term or people who don't know you I just turned 64 and because things start going down hill normally form here I wrote a letter and sent to all my friends explaining all my problems I was having and if it happened with them to please understnad (alot was about what FM was caused too) Nancy I'm so sorry about your daughter. Don't let them get away with it!

I am so very sorry to hear of the loss of your daughter -it must be devastating! My 60 year old husband was recently, mistakenly, prescribed double the manufacturers recommended maximum dose of pregabalin (Lyrica). For four months he endured severe side effects, until the mistake was finally discovered! We are now in the process of taking legal action.

My sons pain specialist put him on Lyrica at the age of 16.5 even though the litriature sais that Lyrica has not been deemed safe for use on patients under 18 years , My son has not had Lyrica for 20 months and still has significant concentration and memory problems and complains that he does not feel well and just wants his brain back . I firmly believe that Lyrica has caused him brain damage as he was sharp as a tack despite pain before he took Lyrica and since has not been right . My questions is , is it normal for Doctors to prescribe Lyrica under the age of 18 agains the manufacturers advice and is he likely to ever recover from this obcene drug ? i am very worried he has been damaged for life .

I've taken Lyrica for PHN for 11 months. I've tapered from 150mg to 75mg to 50mg to 25mg. I'm on the 4th day of zero dosage and I immediately developed both upper and lower respiratory issues, including copious amounts of green, even brown mucus from my sinuses and lungs. Any advice is greatly valued.

|I have had many of the problems reported here after being on Lyrica. I am also experiencing symptoms of thyroid problems and will follow up with my doctor. Has anyone here had thyroid issues, and if so, do these clear with time?Thanks. What a horrible horrible experience. I can't believe with so many patients having such a horrendous experience that they are allowed to dispense Lyrica.|
