    After a week of taking Pregabalin you shouldn't really be feeling as awful as you say. There certainly shouldn't be an increase of back pain-the Pregabalin should be helping your pain levels not making them worse. I would go and see your dr to discuss the effects your having-maybe Pregabalin just doesn't suit you.

    hope you feel better soon.
