In brief: Maybe...
Lyrica (pregabalin) has been shown to be helpful with nerve pain, but not really arthritis, inflammation, etc.
Therefore, if the pain is from a nerve...Perhaps. Otherwise, see your doctor about other options.

In brief: Not optimal.
For true joint pain, you're better off with an anti-inflammatory medication.
