I have managed to gradually reduce to 10 mg (Started at 20 mg in Dec) - all going well but a week ago I started getting some pains in my right shoulder again. Today these have become much worse - my fault maybe as I think I have overdone the exercise ,yesterday I swam, did some gardening and hoovered the house. Now taking 4 hourly ibruprofen - don't really want to go up on the pred.
My questions are ....... Do you think it will settle if I rest and continue Ibruprofen? Is this a flare up which probably needs a Pred increase to sort it? If so how much extra pred? Lastly, if I increase do I then have to do the go slowly approach to reduction again? What would happen if I took say 12mg for a few days to deal with the pain then went back to 10mg quickly?
