What a Day a Week Makes!
It's been a week and four days since I went back on the Lyrica. I was on 75 mg once a day for a week, then moved up to 150 mg once a day. I can already tell a difference! All of my sensitivities are coming out of overdrive. I've not had as many migraines. Still some headaches though. I'm able to ride in a car again without being nauseated. I can go out in public again without the sounds and smells of the people associated with the outside world making me sick. People just don't know how hard it is to function when the simple sound of a fork being dropped on a plate can send you spiraling into unrecoverable nausea, vertigo and migraines. Or their stupid phone chirping with a text message. Things that most people don't even notice can seem fatal to me. But now it's coming back under control. I'm really hoping to be able to stay at this dosage. But one of my biggest adversaries, Summer, is on its way. With the heat and the brilliant sunshine, come more woes. I suspect I may just have to increase when summer hits full force. But hopefully not.
