Diagnosed in April, I also started on 15mg, 2 weeks later reduced to 10mg, had a flare up! Went back to 15mg and I am now reducing at 1 mg every 2/3 weeks, I am currently on 11mg. My pains have come back, but not like before taking steroids. I am very tired, I also have diabetes so my GP wants me to come down ASAP to help with the blood sugars that have increased. I have not been referred to a consultant, should I be? Interesting in that you should stay in 10mg for a year, but this will affect my diabetes. Confused what to do!
