Just a little update. I'm starting to taper to 5 mg prednisone, continue to benefit from low intensity light therapy offered by a physiotherapist, plus my good diet (low refined carbs, high whole foods) and varied exercise regimen. I also actively avoid stressful situations. This is a taper using dead slow method. Started at 15 in June 2015. I'm 68 and have no other major medical issues, other than a diagnosis of osteopenia, plus a few prednisone side effects.
