Figured out by yesterday afternoon the body aches and terrible fatigue were due to pred reduction. I had to be able to function at work all week so I went back to my previous dose. At the direction of my rheumatologist I have now gone from 19 to 12.5 in one month. I know that is way too fast but I was willing to give it a try, I am now back to the dead slow method so I can have a life while I reduce. Feeling better today but a bit off. I am aiming for 11 at this current reduction with a goal of 10 if I can manage it. Are we all trying to reduce all the time as long as we have no PMR symptoms?
