Welcome to Healthcare magic!

steroid will help you solve this problem but not the pain. I suggest you to talk to your doctor and give you some analgesics so your pain problem get resolve.

If you were my patient I would have suggest you either Ibuprofen or Diclofenac. But this irritate your stomach by increasing acidity. so you wil take some antacids with it . Capsule Risek (Omeprazole ) 40 mg before break fast is best option. These both drugs are over counter drugs and dont need doctor prescription :) Hope this was answer to your question :)
