How long do Lyrica withdrawal symptoms last for?

Does anyone know for how long Lyrica withdrawal symptoms last for? I was on Lyrica for two and a half weeks and the side effects made me quit cold turkey.
3 months later I still have withdrawals!!! such as memory loss; I become easily confused; the neuropathy I had has been exacerbated by Lyrica, although lessened in severity overall; very dry throat and mouth; Brain zaps or shivers (these occur along the back of my scalp/head but sometimes across the sides); strong sinus issues; chronic tiredness/fatigue; insomnia but less so now; incredible itchiness; my penis is numb; erectile dysfunction; sweating, crying or just bursting into tears. This drug is a nightmare.
Thank you.
