Glad you have at least got something to try out from GP. Yes I can relate to your struggles. I have been on Pregabalin and it did me some service in pain relief for quiet a few months after getting used to it and experimenting wwith dose (with guidance from GP). Its better to start low and gradually increase if dose needs to be higher. It didnt work for me long term but I know a few who it helps adequately. Good luck with new drug and well done for standing up to the folk who think they are God.

Hi there, I had my gallbladder out a few years ago,I found the recovery time was just a couple of days,and felt great afterwards,no more stomach pain etc.

Also just wanted to say I started pregablin last night,first tablet I took was a dinner time,wasn't expecting any thing to happen after just one tablet,but hey,best might's sleep iv'e had in about 8 years.

I know it's early days yet but I am hopeing i will not get any rubbish side effects.

Hope you get some relief from the pregablin.

Take care Sandy.


Hi Jancrossstitch I am glad to here you got a positive result its a shame that you had to confront her to get the treatment you needed that seems to be the way of it with docs these days, I bet you feel better getting it off your chest too she will most certainly listen to you from now on good for you. hope your meds help and that you dont have to wait too long for your Gall bladder Op Hugs tou you Debbie xx
