I have been dealing with C8 nerve pain from a bad disk at c7-t1 since September. I had acdf at c6-c7 13 years ago and am trying very hard to hold off on another surgery at this time. I have taken everything but the kitchen sink plus acupuncture and PT. I took a prednisone pack 6 months ago and lately I am feeling a bit better and my doctor wants to do one more prednisone pack to help accelerate healing since I am already improving. Anybody else have any insight?
