Hello- I've been on prednisone since May- 60mg, as I had lost hearing (i know weird), sight was reduced and was unable to bend ... Well most joints. Today, I struggling to reduce below 25mg, I know it's not a race, we're all different. But, I've had recurring pain within center to right side of chest ,upon taking a DEEP breath. Sometimes to the point where a pain shoots over my right shoulder, & tears well into my eyes. I'm using my daily inhaler, no change. Any direction or commonness would be greatly appreciated by me. Also, does anyone have trouble staying hydrated, followed with leg/hand/feet cramping?
