    Diabetic neuropathy, take Lyrica 3 x a day. My feet now are freezing & pain is severe.Any advice?

    For a few years this medication had helped some with the pain and discomfort in my feet, but in the last few days I have had another new symptom in my feet with the feeling that half my foot and toes were freezing (touched them and they weren't cold) this has caused me severe pain when trying to go to bed especially. I don't notice the new symptoms and pain as much with my tennis shoe on, so I wore a tennis shoe to bed last night, and I was able to get some sleep. Lyrica hasn't helped with this new pain I am having. Anyone have any meds that help better than Lyrica. Anyone having the same issues, anyone that can help. Thanks

    Yup, Mary is right. You might try Neurontin or gabapentin. It may work better for you. It sounds like your neuropathy is getting worse or different nerves are now becoming involved. You need to talk to your Dr about it.
