Hi really appreciate being able to post here for advice as a bit of a learning curve on pred.
Had my tooth extracted last week and didn't carry on with my reduction of 12mg to 11mg but aborted that, rested and took antibiotics. All went well although the tooth extraction was tricky as half had crumbled under the crown so half came out fine, the other half was difficult but not painful.
My query is that since then I have had more pain, like searing pain in my arms and sometimes feet which I've put down to added inflammation because of having a difficult tooth extracted. At the moment I'm trying to rest more and see if the pains subside as its only been a week since the extraction. I haven't really wanted to up my dose as its taken me ages( it seems) to get from 15mg to here and I do tend to get quite emotional on the change of one level to another.
What do folk think? Would it be best to just give it another week and see if pain subsides or should I increase just a little and for how long?
Do appreciate advice given here as for many of us it's the only advice we often get or feel is informed.
Thanks a lot
