Hi, I'm new here. My GP diagnosed Polymyalgia Rheumatica in December 2018 and in April 2019 the Consultant diagnosed Fibromyalgia instead. I have been taking Pregabalin 75mg twice a day since January 2018 due to nerve pain in my leg and foot due to an accident. Up till now the Pregabalin has helped my Fibro symptoms. However, the last few weeks my symptoms have returned. Aching muscles in my arms and legs, restless leg syndrome, brain fog, and the nerve pain in my leg and foot has increased. Can anyone help or advise different treatments I could try, to help with the symptoms, as I don't want to take more Pregabalin
that would be a starting does for pregabalin so I would go back to the GP and see about increasing it or having a chat about what you should be doing about your pain.
but as you say you do not want to take more but do not say why you do not then again its a conversation with gp and maybe think about gabapentin, amitriptyline, duloxetine or something else non drug related. There are a lot of things people can try but what works for one does not translate to someone else.
Thank you desquinn. I have an appt with my gp this week to discuss other options. That's why I have joined your group. Ideally, I want to come off medication completely, but I realise that may not be possible. I was on Prednisone for over a year. It took 8 months to slowly get down to coming off that completely. That was 8 months ago. I can see now it will be trial and error and will have to work out what's best for me.
