Last night I felt the best I have felt for the past 3 weeks. About 6 this morning I awoke to the same pain I had been experiencing. Is this the normal reaction from taking Medrol 4mg, that the pain leaves and come back? Will the pain eventually leave as I continue to take the meds as directed? Should I expect the 6 day pack to fix my pinched nerve?
Methylprednisolone is an oral steroid which can be used to treat acute pain caused by a pinched nerve. It works to reduce the swelling and inflammation at the affected site which helps to reduce nerve root pressure and pain. This relief is often only temporary.
If you are still experiencing pain after a regimen of oral steroids, you should consider a different conservative treatment option, such as rest and physical therapy.
