I visited a neurologist for the first time last week to talk with him about my lower back and leg pain. I had been taking ibuprofen and other NSAIDs to relieve my pain, with the occasional tylenol mixed in. That mixture actually worked pretty well, albeit not perfect.
The neurologist put me on a 10-day round of Prednisone. I can't take NSAIDs while on this. I believe my pain has not been relieved very much at all on Prednisone; certainly feels much less relief than the NSAIDs.
I didn't think this would be possible given the strength of Prednisone, but has anyone found better relief with NSAIDs than something like Prednisone?
