Day 17

...of withdrawal. The insomnia still rules my world. When I sleep I have the most anxious thoughts and dreams. Its usually a stomach ache that wakes me. This morning it was phantom pain in my amputated leg. It felt like someone was going at me with a hammer.

I found a forum on Lyrica on the Internet. Most people describe the exact same symptoms I'm having. I went through another round of arguing with the docs here yesterday. They want to put me on anti-depressants now.

The pain was so pounding yesterday I barely walked at all. And I snapped at most of the people who came near. Lack of sleep = irritability.
