Hello. Wondering if this fatigue is something I have to work through, or if it's a sign I need to increase prednisone?
Was doing well with .5 mg taper until I tried 4.5, then had a flare, back to 7.5, then quickly to 6, and now have been at 5.5 for 3 weeks. No pain, but Not functioning well at all, so tired and fatigued, can't get anything done. Only occasional stiffness.
I'm due for blood test next week, and see rheumatologist the week after.
Appreciate any thoughts.
FYI- my taper has been to drop .5 every 9 days. If I start to feel bad within the 9 days, I go back up .5 mg and wait 9 more days and try again. It has worked well to get me from 12 to 5.5.
