Today I went to see my neurologist.
I'm supposed to replace my gabapentin/Neurontin with pregabalin/Lyrica.
I got a 2 week sample, but insurance might not cover the prescription.
Tomorrow I have PT, possibly my last appointment.
I'm achy and not excited about the drive.
I also found out that my favorite teacher is leaving my school. =(
I'm stressed again, and I think I might be on my way to a flare.

Don't stress yourself into a flare! Just stay calm and take life as it comes. Stressing about things aren't going to help anything and could make things much worse. Just relax... everything will be ok. 😊

Farettbandit ask bout samples of lyrica your neurologist should have them I had to fight with my insurance company and they finally approved it. Its just because it is a nerve diabetic med and no real document thatt it helps with crps.as for stress boy do i know all bout it.. just breathe may sound crazy but it helps alzoknow its okay to break done we are only HUMAN!

I havea sample right now, but until the insurance approves it, I can't have it at school.

Ferretbandit I had to fight my insurance to be Abel to get my Savella for nerve pain. They made me take Lyrica for 3 months, before they would agree to let me take it. The Lyrica was like taking Tylenol for me no help at all. But I was taking Gabapentin with it and I am still taking Gabapentin. Hope it works for you.
