    Fibromyalgia

    When the itching starts, it spreads so fast that it's almost head-to-toe in a minute. It's very intense, and not an itch you can scratch. My scalp and face get it the worst. Sometimes it feels like my skin is on fire, it feels so hot. It really feels like a severe burning sensation. I have Parkinson's Disease, and my PCP finally put me on Lyrica. It's very expensive, and my Insurance doesn't want to cover it. But it works VERY well, and in a month I've had only one flare up. It also helps with all the joint soreness of arthritis. I take two (2) daily, and I hope there will be some way I can stay on it. I haven't noticed any side-effects from it yet.
