I was recently diagnosed after a short course of 20mg pred stopped the pain in its tracks. Bliss! My GP started me on treatment of 15mg pred but I was still in pain and stiff. He said he was concerned that this standard dose hadn't helped and increased it to 20mg. Again that helped a lot, but I've just reduced to 17.5mg and I'm in a lot of pain again. Unfortunately my doctor's just gone on 3 weeks holiday and I don't want to see one of the other docs as they don't know me like he does so I'll stick it out until he returns but I wondered if anyone else has had a similar experience and if so how it worked out.
