I have just been recently diagnosed with neuropathic apin after being in pain for along time post appendectomy removal nearly 3 yrs ago. I have a lump the size of a tennis ball which is apparently an organised haematoma which should have dispersed by now but instead grown(this time last yr was size of golf ball!!)
I have been started on pregabalin (lyrica)and was wondering if anyone else takes this and what side effects they have had as i have had a few unpleasant ones since starting them and was wondering how longh they are likely to continue for as i dont think i can cope with them long term . As yet i dont know if they even work as i was told they take a few weeks to kick in.
Has anyone any experience of these tablets?
