Hi have been on prednisone since the age of two. I took prednisone every day from age 2-20, now I take prednisone 3-4 times a year. ( I take it for severe asthma) I know that prednisone can cause muscle weakness, but I am wondering if it can also cause nerve pain. I was in a car accident and have had severe back pain with pain running down my leg. The MRI is negative, but the eeg shows a problem at the l4-l5 nerve root and I have a slight drop foot. I also have a history of migraines and was told that people with migraine and prednisone use can make me have hyper-sensitive nerve endings. What are your thoughts on this?
