My Dr put me on an 8-day course of prednisone when my back and leg symptoms first started. It gave me a lot of energy, and did make me feel more flexible for a few days, but didn't really bring my pain level down enough to say that it worked for me. Oral steroids aren't meant for long term use, and just another conservative measure that has to be exhausted before or in conjunction with other conservative treatments.
I hope you get some relief soon. I certainly know how you feel.
