For the 2nd time I am having problems reducing when I go below 4 mg of preds. This time I have been reducing by a1/4 mg/month, with symptoms increasing slightly with each reduction I'm now down to 2 1/2 & now feel that j must go back up to 4 due to increased pain & stiffness. Although during this latest period I have moved house with all the work that this has entailed including some heavy gardening, As an aside One G'P at my surgery said that I may never be able to come off preds completely.I was diagnosed 22 months ago starting on 15mg & was told by rheumy that I should expect to be on the preds for 18 months. Any comments will be appreciated
