Hello all you lovely people.
I slowly tapered to 9.5 Pred over a period of 3 weeks. But after months of family stress I too feel like I've been hit by a bus. I went back to 10 for the last 3 days
Climbing stairs is a challenge. Unbelievable levels of fatigue. Pain as bad as pre diagnosis 2.5 years ago.
Yesterday afternoon I took an additional 5mg Pred totalling 15 in two lots. A 10 and then the 5 later. Things improved.
Had a very rough night.
Now waiting to take various pills before and after breakfast. I'm going to get a call out to my GP and ask what I should do.
I saw a Rheumy last Oct who wanted me to get the steroids down. I did it his way. GP said in Feb it was too fast.
I'm a part time priest in the CofE and standing to take services presents a bit of a challenge.
A few weeks ago the Mortons Neuroma in foot was making life tricky. Now I too feel like I've been hit by a bus.
Thxs for reading. Any wisdom gratefully received.
