Dr Brims :

Hello, welcome to Justanswer, I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek

Dr Brims :

It varies, it may last for 2 weeks to 3 months. It may also permanently reduce inflammation if the cause has been resolved

Customer: Is their anything else I can try? Shots don't really work either.
Dr Brims :

You mean spinal injections?

Customer: Yes.
Dr Brims :

If neither spinal injections or oral prednisone work, you may need stronger pain medication like percocet

Dr Brims :

Are you there?

Customer: Yeah I'm here.
Dr Brims :

Did you see my reply?

Customer: So that means I would have to go to a pain center correct? I don't have a regular doctor except for the one go to at the clinic. I live in Huntsville AL and their are a lot of doctors here, I just don't know who is the best for me. I have seen a few but, one doctor got me confused with someone else. And he is supposed to be one if the good ones here.
Customer: Yes I saw the reply.
Dr Brims :

A pain doctor would be the best person to see

Customer: Thank you for your time Dr. Have a good day.
Dr Brims :
