I am down to 4.5 pred I have GCA and Polymyalgia. My rheumy has been having me reduce by half every three weeks. I now get quite bad pain in shoulders hips etc. ( last few months) when I first wake up. In fact the pain wakes me up. ( He says it is ok to reduce even though I get this pain) Once I get out of bed it all goes and I don't suffer till the next morning. I don't take any pain killers. What I want to know is 1, Can I take co codomol and when should I take it to relieve the morning pain? 2. am I doing the right thing by reducing like this. My blood results are normal, no sign of iflamation.
