Hi all. I'm sitting here feeling so bummed out (understatement) regarding the Lyrica treatment I have been on for a month in a half or so. I have been touting how great it is, and it is as far as significantly reducing my pain, as well as giving me more energy, but.... I noticed I am gaining weight, and can't stand it. It's especially around my lower abs where I need it the least, and I'm even afraid to get on the scale. I can tell just by the way my clothes are fitting. Now it's really no surprise, because I am constantly hungry, and rarely feel full. It's like I have the munchies. Before Lyrica, it took very little food to make me feel full. I have even been dreaming about food, ugh!! I did some research on the web and found that this is very very common, and I know I just can't continue to take it at this rate. It gave me my life back, but the cost is too great. I'm not vain, but I already have 30 pounds to lose, I don't need anymore. I just wanted to share that with you guys. I'm so bummed about it.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
