I have been on prednisolone for 32 years. My rheumy has been posted to Singapore, and i met my new Rheumy a few weeks back. I have been on 6mg of steroids for years as former Rheumy said that was a good maintenence dose for me. New rheumy decided to reduce down to 5mg. I am now noticing weekness in arms and legs, pins and needles in hands, muscle cramps in back of thighs,feet etc. Also mention i am on Azathioprine for Lupus also. Has anyone expierienced symptons on reducing steroids. Be v grateful for any answers on this. Thanks. Keep on keeping on x
