    Type 1... Fibromyalgia... Not ME.. Tried pregabalin but couldnt get on with it.. Or gabapentin I think the other one I tried... Both gave me hideous side effects of being torally unbalanced when walking.. And could not stand noise.... Couldnt even walk my dogs.. One because of balance, bur also because them talking sounded so loyd and horrible in my head.

    I don't have ME but am Type 1 and was prescribed pregablin for a nerve disorder.

    I had to stop taking it as it was making me faint at least 2-3 times a day and left me very unsteady.
