Great responses! Thanks, I got the info I needed..I think.
I'm calling the neuro again tomorrow - it's running about once per week right now, more often than I talk with my bro and sis combined! - I'm doing more research to see what I want to say/ask for. Oxygen seems like a no-brainer...may as well try it. I'm at the point where I'm willing to take my chances with prednisone and its side effects. We'll have to see how tonight goes...there've only been 3 to 4 h/a today so far, but nighttime is usually filled with the most painful ones. If it's a good night, then I'll just ask for the O2; if it's another rough night, then I'll mention that I'm willing to try other meds like prednisone. It'd probably be smart to wait 2 weeks before I add a steroid - Neurontin increased today to 5/day, and next Monday to 6/day...give that a week and go from there, probably.
Let's pray that today's not a lower-pain-day fluke. This could be the start of something good (or at least better than the last, oh, 9 to 12 months).
Comments on prednisone, etc appreciated.
