I'm wondering if anyone else experiences pain or discomfort in their tummy/side while coming off steroids. I've been on steroids for the past 6 weeks or so going between 20mg -10mg. Monday I came down to 5mg and that when I got this pain/discomfort today I'm steroid free. I did go back to my gp who thinks its muscular but I don't think it is, the only thing I can think is it might be some sort of side effect from coming off the steroids. I was using codenix also for about 3 days to suppress the awful cough I had. I was thinking the pain was caused by the codenix but I've been off it now a couple of days and I still have this pain.
Sorry if this is confusing I feel queasy, tired and uncomfortable. I find it very hard coping with copd and lupus I never know whats wrong with me. I've posted a simular post on the lupus site.
