User :   Hey my sister has been sick since February of this year. They found out she had kidney stones and were treating the pain with Tylenol # 3. She also has been diagnosed with CFS and fibromyalgia. They gave her morphine and percocet they took her off the pain medicine and started her on Lyrica after 3 days she started having a tremor in her right leg and arm. They stopped the lyrica and the only thing has been continued to be given to her is benedryl and lorazpam. This was all in February. She is still continuing to have the tremor in the leg. We just took her to the ER last night and she has strider and they gave her prednisone to help with that after taking that this morning her breathing was very rapid and her heart rate has been very high sometimes as high as 155 beats per min. She has put on 11 pounds in two weeks, has swelling, very fatigued, takes a very very luke warm shower and almost faints every time. They have tested her for mono, cancers, blood clots, and all regular blood work. They have even done MRI, EKG, and EEG and everything is normal. Could the benedryl and the lorazpam be causing the reaction to the Lyrica to contine??? Thanks for any help or thoughts you can provide.
