Hello. My husband is C6/7 , 6 months post.
Lyrica has been the only medication that has helped his central pain. He just had the dose increased a few weeks ago, and has been mostly sleeping ever since.
We went to PT today, and Chris told the therapist that he didn't feel that he could get his foot to move as well as before. The therapist hooked up the electrozappers and proclaimed that he was not getting the numbers that he had before (only tested once before). The therapist said that it is possible that Lyrica is not only blocking the pain signals but also the good ones, and that it could be having a negative effect on the central nervous system in that way.
Purely speculation? very possible, but it has me concerned . Any input?
