No, I'm afraid not. Steroids will not help with trauma from an injection.
As I said, after so many years, you're dependent upon prednisone. I don't know if the adrenal disease was FROM the steroids, or are being TREATED by it.
Either way, you're on them and increasing them will not help with this if it was due to a needle into the bone.
in fact, you may now have the start of bone infection called osteomyelitis. I'm not saying you DO have that, but it is possible.
Steroids at higher doses in that case will not help and may harm as it prevents healing in this situation.
To break the grip, flexeril or Soma are far better choices. Baclofen can be used in some rare cases as well.
But I see no role of steroids in your treatment induced pain. None at all.
does this help? I hope so.
