I'm so sorry your are suffering so long with your doctor not "listening" to you.
You didn't mention you diagnosis so I can't be more specific.
Prednisone is used for many problems.
It also has a wide variety of side effects.
It works well on some and others not.
I do know that if you are in so much pain you should have noticed some change by now.
You may need an actual medication for pain in addition to the prednisone.
I would take someone with me and go to your doctor. You are probably at a point where you cannot relay the severity of the situation.
You also may have trouble listening to what he is saying.
If you ( or your companion) feel like he's not taking you seriously, go to another specialist.
This may take some time.
I'd tell him right out that you will go to the ER because you cannot continue as is.
They hate when their patients go to the ER due to dissatisfaction. It makes them look bad and its an inefficient use of health care dollars.
YOU do what's best for you!
