Without pain, I am a new person | E.D.
I started taking Pregabalin about a week after the first consultation and increased the dose over a period of 8 weeks. The effect was enormous. Already during the first week, the whole-body ache reduced drastically and my movements improved. I now walk my dog without a stick; I can wait in queues; I can do household chores and some gardening. Pregabalin also stabilised my mood. Overall, I feel as well as in my twenties. I sleep well without major interruptions and wake after a good night’s sleep. There were some temporary side effects such as drowsiness and lack of concentration, which started with every increase of the dose, but subsided within a week.
In addition to the treatment with Pregabalin, other painful ailments such as Plantar Fasciitis were dealt with swiftly and efficiently including cortisone-injections and physiotherapy.

The Fibro clinic is one of the best organised clinics I have come across. The biggest advantage is their interdisciplinary approach: They work as a team focusing on the needs of a patient rather than concentrating on narrowly defined areas of specialisms. I cannot but sing the praise of these highly efficient, friendly, helpful and patient-centred health professionals.
