Not posted for a little while but not sure what to do right now.
I've been gradually reducing pred from 20mg in February & reduced fine without any issues to 11mg. I did a slow reduction to 10mg over a month ago with a little discomfort but nothing too bad or that I couldn't handle & seemed to settle ok and my doctor advised me not to reduce any further, to have another blood test and see him again in a month so I've been doing just that. The last couple of days have been awful, pain has returned in back of head, across shoulders and in my hips & thighs, incredible hot flashes & extreme sweating with that awful fatigue & tiredness flooding over me.
I feel so frustrated as things had been going relatively smoothly & this hasn't coincided with any reduction of pred! Does anybody out there know why this could be happening at all?
