Feeling disappointed as I had thought I was on the way to zero........ Had been on 2 mg of pred and felt fine, so started to reduce to 1.5 mg using the very slow method. Has not been successful. Over the last 3 weeks have felt increasingly tired with pain in the right shoulder and right hip, and feeling generally sore and out of energy and motivation. Have gone back to 2 mg. Also have a very sore right heel coming and going - plantar facilitis I think. Feeling generally old and worn out! ( only 61).
Dr had told me to increase thyroxine after last blood tests which I have done - but don't feel any benefit as yet.
Took an extra 1 mg pred. this am. ( 3 mg in total). Should I do this every day or take more? If so how much? Don't want to mess up my thyroid dose. For me it seems more pred = less thyroxine and less pred more thyroxine.
Everything apart from the PMR in my life is good - retired, loving family, lots of friends, lots of activities, lots of holidays, - generally no worries. I know I am lucky compared to many others who post on here but am feeling in need of some advice please.
