I doubt it: After 2 years of taking lyrica, (pregabalin) i doubt these symptoms are related to it.

Not real likely: Diarrhea is a known side effect but unlikely to develop new after 2 yr. If it doesn't stop shortly taper it off and try it again after it stops first check with your doctor he may know other reasons or may test it.
