I have gradually increased my dose of pregabalin and have been on 150mg for about a week. It seems to be working - I have had very little nocturnal urge to move in my legs where my Rls usually presents.
However I am experiencing a powerful restlessness across my chest and torso which is horrible and keeping me awake just as much as the Rls did. It settles down if I take a teaspoon of Kratom
I am pretty sure it is the lyrica. Has anyone else experienced this? Restlessness is listed as a possible side effect.
Is it worth persevering with lyrica in the hope it settles down? I read that most side effects abate after about a month. If it isn’t going to settle I might as well discontinue lyrica as this restlessness is almost as bad as having the Rls.
