I am on a low dose of pred, 5mg daily, for GCA, having come down from 40mg over nearly two years. Since I came down to 5mg some five weeks ago I have had pain in my hips and knees, not always all at the same time, and particularly in my left hip and down the leg at night. Over the past two days it has been getting worse. I find it very difficult to walk and hobble along with a stick. I have had an X-ray but no results yet. I wonder if anyone has had a similar experience? I just don't know what is going on.
