My doctor has prescribed oral steroids for my fibromyalgia and

My doctor has prescribed oral steroids for my fibromyalgia and spinal stenosis of my neck and lower back. I had neck surgery to correct the stenosis. I'm in a lot of pain and have been given muscle relaxers, and Cymbalta, taken off meloxican. She is now saying a Toridol injection might help. I have also had 2 trigger shots on Monday. Is this mix okay? Is there something more I might do? I've been crying in pain for days.
