  • Sounds as if you have learnt the most important thing already!! Keep it up!

  • Welcome from me too - learning to put your feet up is the most important lesson you can learn!

  • Hello from me too - another newbie, diagnosed early Jan. Like you, the predisilone worked like magic. Been tapering my dose the past couple of weeks to 12.5mg. The GP put me straight onto the lower dose and aches and fatigue hit me again like a stone, so I now have her blessing to taper as I think best :) Managing much better by alternating doses and gradually increasing the days on the lower dose. Hope you continue to feel better. It certainly is a shock, when you are normally an active person, to suddenly not be able to do the things you take for granted. Best of luck :)
