I am in my 3rd year of reducing the PRED to nearly 11mg-been reducing on a 7-8 wk cycle. Generally doing OK and then diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis -thought at first to be Sciatica. A lot of pain killer but then 2mths ago fitted a STEN machine. Helped a great deal But then just as I am about to go to 11mg,Back pain kicked in again, but added over the last five days disturbed sleep, 'feeling like death warmed up' tired in the day with a couple of 1- 1.5 hour sleeps- just there one minute and gone the next. Had to return to medium dosing of strong pain killer. My bloods and BP etc are good .Good people-anybody else as had similar symptoms? I do not know which one is which or is one playing on the other .80 just ,still swim a doz. lengths on a Friday but forget the grass cutting/hedge cutting and car washing -I miss those. John
