A 38-year-old female asked:

I have fasciitis on MRI and have been on prednisone to fix this and the swelling. Would a pain management doctor be able to help finish getting rid of the inflammation with steroids? I do have pain from this issue but do not want pain medication.

Yes but ...: So should your regular doc. He/She is able to prescribe appropriate steroids and pain meds.
