Hello everyone....I am still new at this so not sure if I am posting in the appropriate place or not but will give it a shot anyway. I am 42 and was diagnosed with fibro and chronic fatigue syndrome. I tried Cymbalta for approx. 3 months and it worked for a little while and then pain and fatigue just continued to increase so my doctor had me wean off it. I took my first dose of Lyrica today at my doctors advisement even though I am skeptical having read some of the side effects, anyway as I said I took the first dose this morning and supposed to take another in the evening, well I have been in a fog all day although my pain is not as bad today, not gone completely but not as bad and it was pretty bad....all over body pain. Can anyone tell me of your experience with Lyrica? The only other meds I am currently taking is Progesterone and Bi-Est for hormone imbalances and Ambien for sleep which has not really worked for the last 3 nights....maybe the sleep issue has been the amount of stress lately I'm not sure since the Ambien was helping me stay asleep even though I don't even remember the last time I woke feeling rested. Thanks for listening and any help you can give to help me understand all of this. Keep well and gentle hugs to all........Marnie

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...
