I have been on 10 mg pred since May, tried foolishly going down to 7.5, obviously this did not work so went back to 10 mg. ( I was fine on it before, no symptoms) since then I have had neck and shoulder pains which disappear as soon as I get up. I also have nausea which lasts for about 3-4 hours. i feel fine in myself. It has been 10 days since I increased the dose and wondered if I should give it longer to see if these symptoms disappear or should I go up even further? I have GCA, my recent blood work was ESR 2 mm/ h and CRP 1 mg/ L. Would it be safe to try reducing again with these symptoms?
