I thought I was doing really well, stable on 9mg, finally got my boot off after the partial tear to my achilles tendon and getting a bit more mobile again, had my rhumy visit which went well, and then because i was feeling so good, started a reduction again to 8mg and had my flu jab - - because i work in the NHS and they pester me to get it done! I managed 2 days at 8mg and I am now back up to 10mg (and think it needs to to higher still) as the pain in my arms elbows shoulders, wrists feel like I have overdone it in the gym with weights! I just cant get any relief from the constant ache, cant get comfortable no matter how many pain killers i take or how I sit. Also had two nights where i have woken up with my knee 'frozen' and so painful to get moving - and that hasnt happend for 'ages'. Is there a link to the flu jab that I should have realised before hand or is it just another flare up?
