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 I then 2mths ago fitted a STEN machine. Helped a great deal. 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, 1-Spinal Stenosis or is 2 -PMR playing on the other .80 just ,still swim a doz. lengths on a Friday-Pain,crippling,sleeping during the day/every, still waiting for an Epidural ,but are there any other Tests that can be carried out to sort out the difference? -not reducing at the moment - keeping at 11mg,thank you- John
