He Ordered voltaren gel. It is not working at all. He said steroids would be next. I do not want to take steroids based on my previous experiences with them. I am afraid to tell the doctor that I am in such awful pain, mainly since he said at 4 weeks I should not have this pain. I am so afraid that I have permenant nerve damage. I cannot wear my pants around my waist at all. I have to roll everything I wear down below my belly. I am 55 and female. What can I do to stop this pain? Do I have PHN?
