I was prescribed prednisone for the second time for spinal stenosis and nerve pain from back to toes right side. I also received epidural shots and I am on the percocets, valium, and neurotin. The first time I was on prednisone It made the pain tolerable but 3 weeks later it came back and since then has gotten worse. I finished my second script about a week ago. I still have pain but my foot pain is tolerable. my back seems to be getting worse and I think my body is being compromised for favoring my right side . I now feel pin in my left leg , right shoulder ( probably from the use of the cane). IF anyone out there has used prednisone I would like to know how it worked for you and how long you found relief.
