I was diagnosed with pmr 2 months ago, severe pains from neck down to ankles. I was put on 15mg prednisone and after 4weeks, the pain completely cleared, about 2 weeks ago I decided to lower it to 12.5mg and I notice that I am perspiring a lot . It seems like my body temperature control has gone bonkers. Is this normal with reduction of prednisone ? I would be much obliged if someone could tell me that reduction of prednisone does cause this severe perspiring and I also have gained 20 lbs in weight.
