Thanks for your question.
Medrol dose pak should have been working by this time.
It is better to consider a steroid shot ( methyl prednisolone) for faster action.
Also an infection should be ruled out.
Hence you can go to the hospital if this is very painful.
Is that what they would give me at the hospital?
yes they will give you a steroid shot and you will see dramatic improvement.
ok...is the medrol pack just not a high enough dose???? Do you think I could wait to see if there is any improvement by tomorrow or would it for sure have already began to work?
yes you can wait till tomorrow.
medrol is good dose but may not work as fast as the shots do.
