Hi all, well Im back again to ask some advice. I had reduced my dosage down to 1mg and was feeling okay, then I had what I thought was a relapse but after upping my meds it mad no difference and the pain was different, I think you said John that you thought it may be something else and yes it was. I had a trapped nerve and had to wait for it to heal. Thats when I decided to drop the 1mg to see how I would go, I have been off the prednisone for nearly a week now and my whole body aches like having the flu, I am also very stiff if I sit too long and getting going is a bit of a task, I am really tired most of the time with very little energy. Is this my PMR or withdrawals from the meds. I could really do with some guidance.
