Has anyone had limb jerks from taking pregabalin (gaberpentin did the same to me)? I am only one 150mg a day at present and will be increased to 300mg soon. Im in so much pain and desperate to give them a try, but the jerking even kept me awake last night. They are horrible and pronounced involuntary movements.

If anyone has had this, did it go away after a while? Should i just try to put up with it for future benefit?

Thankyou. x

I have jerks at times when I am resting or either going to or waking from a sleep ..thought it was just something I did never would have linked it to FM or meds until a previous thread mentioned it.
If it is annoyin gyou I would mention it to your GP on your next visit.
Good luck ranking up the pregabalin..I can never get past 150mg (2.75mg /day).
