Last day of weeks trial on10mg of Pred. I know it's a very low dose, took my first dose on the day before travelling for 7 hours across country to a Wedding. Had been dreading the journey, due especially to pain in both buttocks, couldn't sit for more than 5 minutes without feeling I had been kicked by a horse. Sat on feather pillows all the way, took frequent stops, and arrived feeling only as bad as I would if I had been well. Had a nights rest as the venue was another hours drive from where we are staying. Still a bit sore but nothing unbearable, managed to get my arms up to do my hair and make up, (had given up with the make up, too painful!) was still aware of pains but they were in the background now, actually managed two dances in the evening, (my Rheumy said I would!,) Did feel the pain creeping in when I got in bed, especially the hip, but could have been all the activity at the beginning of trial which couldn't be avoided. Since then have spent a restful week just strolling around and having lots of naps. Have felt a return of soreness around back of knees and in one shoulder, not like before but almost reminding me it is still there. Facing return journey tomorrow and a week off Pred which I am a bit anxious about, will keep you all updated. Best Wishes🌻
