Good Morning, I was wondering if anyone has had the same problem I am. I keep trying to get off prednisone but every time I do, I start experiencing the same pain I did in the beginning. I was only on 5 mg a day, and I was weaned off of it correctly. Can 5 mg really make that big of a difference. My rheumatolgist told me that I need to give my endocrine system time to start working but it has been a week and the pain keeps getting worse. Any advice will help, thank you.
