Re: How is everyone?

Hi all OT friends, It has been such a very long time since I have made contact to the OT site, mainly because nothing has changed for me in years, I have had OT for well over 20 years. Like so many of you out there I have tried many meds with little success. I have been on Lyrica for about 10 years ...

Re: Mercury toxicity, other heavy metals and POT

Hello golfnut, I had quite a lot of Mercury fillings and decided to have them all removed, hoping that it would stop my tremors, this would have been about 10 years ago. Sorry to say there was no improvement whatsoever. cheers Lorna

Re: How is everyone?

Hi All I am back again, had a chuckle about people using disable people to get into Dinsneyland, not surprised. What really gives me a laugh is when I am shopping with my three legged camping stool, I use it quite a lot and its mainly checkout chicks, they see me sitting on the stool and most laugh,...

Re: How is everyone?

Hi All, Its been some time since I have posted anything, but do check the site from time to time. I have a question for people who are taking Lyrica.

I have been on Lyrica for 6 years but I only take 75mg once a day, I have increased the dose but found no difference in standing time for me. But when I went on Lyrica ( I remember it like it was , yesterday), I did not slee...

Re: OT - Experienced over time

Hi all, I was looking for all the posts on Lyrica but to no avail so decided to add my bit here. This was a trial I did myself and as we all know not all meds react the same way with all of us. I have been taking Lyrica now for 6 years, started on 75mg once a day, I was on this dose for about 2 year...

The travel struggle

Hi to all OT friends. I have not long returned from a trip to Russia, Dubai and Singapore which took about 4 weeks and I can honestly say I found I could never do a trip like this again without the help of a friend or family member. I took 2 three legged stools with me, one for the shower and one as...

Re: Lyrica

Hi all, regarding Lyrica being used as a nerve pain this is so, as also being used for tremors etc. I saw a program where a lady had had a double masectomy, and was in constant pain due to nerve ends not joined, she was put on Neurontin, this stopped her pain. Also a friend of mine had a face operat...
