Healthy wishes to you all for 2017. I wonder if I could pick some brains. ? I've had to up my steroids over last few weeks back up to 8mg I tried 7mg but found my hip and buttock pain increased, has anyone else had problems reducing from 8mg to 7mg ? I've tried several times but ended up increasing back up to 8mg. Also is there a way of telling if buttock pain is caused by myofacial pain or PMR. I don't seem to hurt anywhere else now just horrible pain in low back and buttocks. Really getting me down now it's been about 2 years I also have awful exhaustion.
My next conundrum is ............ Weight gain while on pred, ready ??? Do people put on more weight the higher the dose of pred they take ? For example if the dose of pred is 5mg daily would that trigger the same amount of weight gain as say someone who is taking 20mg ? What I'm trying to say is it the actual drug in the system despite how much or how little that distrups metabolism ?
Had a bit of a grizzly day today despite spending lots of time with my wonderful husband and lovely careing children and grandchildren all over Christmas and new year
Love to you all for 2017 E 💐💕
