Hello and welcome I'm Dr Chip

If the Lyrica is making you sick and not helping the pain there's no reason to continue to take it

Ask your doctor for something else like Tramadol or Mobic or Diclofenac which should help without making you sick

Please let me know if you need any more information

What could be the cause of the headache
Expert:  Dr Chip (M.D.) replied 7 months ago.

It's most likely what's called a tension headache caused by spasm of the muscles in your neck
