How common is burning and itching of the soles of the feet in fibromyalgia? I have been to a podiatrist who ended up sending me to a pain specialist. He has recently started me on lyrica which has helped some, but I still cannot wear anything but clogs or Birkenstock sandals. Any suggestions?
I had those burning soles of the feet, it was awful. I used ice packs on them. I'm on Lyrica now and haven't had the problem. lyrica take a while to work. It took about a month and the dr. wants me to up the dose. I don't want to as I am so fatigued. Whatever helps, do it!
thanks for the reply. I know you must hear this alot, but, it seemed like I was the only one to be experiencing these weird symptoms. Do you think the lyrica makes you tired? I recently mentioned this to my pain specialist and he did not attribute it to the meds. Thanks
Lyrica made me so tired the first month, I thought I would never want to move again! But low and behold that side effect went away. I am still a bit tired, but nothing like at first. Some people do not get that tired on Lyrica, i sure did and my rhemy said it is normal and will go away. He wants me to up my dose and says as I go up, most likely I will be tired again. He also mentioned taking all the pills at night. I told him it didn't seem to make a difference. I woke up tired. Not much now and I am not looking forward to going up. I am on 150 mg. now.
