Last time I posted had been without pred for 8 weeks after 3 years of dead slow reduction and was hoping some morning aches were not the onset of a flare. Disappointingly 2 weeks later came the familiar upper arm pain with restricted movement. I resumed with pred and was surprised that a mere1mg was sufficient. Another 2 months on and I am experiencing same upper arm problems mornings. Reluctantly Intend to increase by 0.5. Is it mistake to use "Dead slow "increments or Is it advisable to go on back to a higher dose? How long should I wait before attempting to reduce again?
