Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
The persistent pain in the muscles is not likely to respond to the steroids that you are taking for last 6 months,. You need to taper off the doses after consulting your physician and start with some pain killers.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. You can consult me again directly through my profile URL http://bit.ly/Dr-Praveen-Tayal
