While since I posted here . Seemed to be progressing well, down to 7.5 pred. Last weekend felt a bit off , headache and achy in shoulders and bottom specifically my sit bone. Ischial bone I think it's called . Went back up to 10 mg but truthfully no improvement . As there has been confusion over my diagnosis I tapered from 40mg in nov to now quite quickly . My rheumy not great my gp is though and I know he will prob raise the pred again. . Should I persevere and hope it eases off again. By the way I have had untreated symptoms for about 11/2 years or so . Very down at mo as trying to get walking again and just feel awful after exercise .
