... effects, but what bothers me the most is that I am experiencing a great deal of nausea. If these symptoms, especially the nausea don't subside, I am not sure I can continue, which is too bad, because it is definitely helping my pain levels.
Anyone had experience this before?

You may have started on to high of a dose. When I tried Lyrica I was started on 50mg once a day to begin, I had severe fatigue so could never increase my dose. Perhaps taper down to once a day, then if you feel ok add the 2nd dose. Also, your doctor should be able to prescribe something for your nasuea until it subsides. I found relief after my first 50mg dose so was bummed I had to stop it, but the fatigue was just too much for me. Hope it works for you.
