Hi everyone! Haven't posted in a while but I just had a major fright! I'm I the process of reducing pred which I have been taking for nigh on two years. I started on 20 ml and am now down to 4 ml. I have had increasing pain and movement is becoming limited but I thought, fight the pain and I'll be fine, however, I'm now finding that getting out of bed is difficult and my shoulders, hips , legs and arms are quite painful and stiff but I am also getting loss of sensation in those areas. The major fright I had was in the bathroom earlier. I haven't had a bowel movement in six days and I'm also suffering pain from that. Doctors have given me many laxatives and two enemas to no avail. I was in the bathroom when I had a weird feeling in my head and the next thing, my whole leg was as dead as a dodo and freezing cold, I panicked. I just hung on to the sink for about 15 minutes before sensation returned, very frightening anyway, at the same time I had intense pain in my neck and shoulders. Here comes the stupid question, should I up my preds now.
