Hi i'm fairly new here and its my first post. I've had varying degrees of chronic pain for many years, i have crps, and chronic hip pain. i am a wheelchair user due to my pain. I've had many different pain killers, physio, spinal nerve stimulation, tens machine, alternative therapies etc... And nothings really helped. I've recently gone back to the doctors who put me on pregabalin which has been steadily increased at each appointment, the higher dose has helped a little but the side effects are really bad in that I feel spaced out, can't think straight, concentrate, having a conversstion and generally functioning at all. I have been on this increased dose for bout a month and am wanting to increase again. Has anyone else had these side effects? Do they wear off? And if they do how long do the side effects last for?
