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.

In brief: Pain meds will

only mask the pain.
.. you need proper treatment to get rid of the fasciitis. When patients are given and following all the treatment steps they do not usually need any pain meds. Check with your doctor or see a specialist for the correct therapy! Get better soon!
