In brief: Yes
Lyrica (pregabalin) is a good choice specialy if the pain is related to a nerve root compression.
Not as good if the pain is secondary to arthritis in the spine.

In brief: Maybe
Lyrica (pregabalin) is an anti-siezure medication indicated for diabetic peripheral neuropathy.
It may also be beneficial for other forms of neuropathic pain. If your shoulder pain is from a pinched nerve in the neck, then this may be an option.
