I wonder if anyone has experienced considerable pain in back, hips, knees and thighs while reducing steroids? I have been tapering gradually from 40 mg to currently 10 mg. I am also on Methotrexate. I was diagnosed with GCA in August 2014.
I am not sure if the pain is related to the steroids or if the steroids have been masking pain that I would have experiened without them. If the latter and this pain is going to be with me for ever, I am going to have to make some changes to my life, for example, move from a house with many stairs.
It would be very useful to have the views of other people who have suffered similarly. Thank you in advance.
