Pain or prednisone? Which would you choose?

I am not yet 40 but was in a very bad car accident. I developed what my doctor calls post traumatic arthritis. Some days my foot is so painful I can barely walk (though I do anyway, I refuse to stop) Thus far I have tried a ton of medications from Celebrex to Naproxin with no relief. Prednisone however takes away the pain. I quickly learned to adjust my eating so as not to gain weight (when I say adjust I mean about 40% fewer calories)however my face appears as if it were blown up with air. Bloating it is called. I retain water in my face in a massive way, a touch in other parts but I can't abide my face in this state, so I eased off the drug. Now I just want to scream from the pain. I went to the gym as usual, came home and slathered myself with Ben Gay after my shower.
