Hi everyone, haven't posted for a while but right now I really need some advice. I've been reducing preds by 1/2 mg monthly and was fine until I got to 9 mg which I also took for a month. I'm getting a lot of pain from shoulders to buttocks and I am very breathless on slightest exertion, putting kettle on doubles me up , very scary. Gp says heart & lungs fine but I'm worried. I was thinking, should I increase pred by 5mgs to see if it helps, although I don't want to, but living on my (with cat) my nerves are getting the better of me I'm starting to shake a lot, especially my hands. If I lie on my bed for a few hours I feel better, but as soon as I get up it all starts again. Thx to all.
