Well it's been a year since I joined this group and you have been my rock. Felt a little guilty at times for when I started Prednisone it was like a miracle and I breezed along with little issues. And then reducing to 9, ESR looking good, BANG back up to 15, even on 15 ESR 56. As I looked back at my journal I see from a year ago, why are my biceps so sore, like I had way overdone a workout. Same now. Same with not severe headache but enough to make you sleep bad on both sides of head. No other symptoms of GCA. Morning fever, feel like crap for first couple hours, yesterday most of the day. OK now to my question. I have taken 20mg for almost 2 weeks, should I reduce slowly or go directly to 15 like I did initially? Many thanks and wishing you all well.
