A back x-ray has confirmed the spinal bone spurs in the lumbar.  The Lyrica has slowly stopped working.  We went to 450 mg, with a recommended maximum of 300 mg.  Nothing I was up all night.  Imagine a roller with razor blades going up an down your thigh.  The pressure on my back when I sleep gets it going.

I do have a hard hitting post, but the headaches made it impossible for me to finish it.  I am way too tired right now to work on anything. Readership always goes down on the weekends.  I will have it ready on Monday.  I promise a very revealing and fully documented hard hitting post on Monday.

Mr. BWC; I have a friend who has neuropathy because she had cancer and is also diabetic. She is a cancer survivor and has been taking lyrica and just recently started to do 2 mile walks and swimming and at first she would get very tired but now she is starting to feel better. Her doctor told her to try the swimming at least 30 minutes for 3 times a week. I hope you get better. I've seen my friend go through very BAD times. Family and friends support helps a lot .

I do 10 laps in the pool three times. With lumbar spurs they say to avoid waking because it puts pressure on the spurs. But I will tell you when I get out of the pool I feel great. I was at 280 and as of this morning I'm at 257. Swimming is great exercise.
