Just a wee update to let you know how I'm getting on with my Pred. I am now eight days in on 15mg and although I have had an improvement in symptoms and pain level, I am still very much up and down, one good day and then one bad day. The fatigue is with me most of the time but worse on bad days. Fortunately, I have not had the side effects which was my biggest fear, only slight tummy ache, sleeping pattern is okay but awake and needing my Pred early in morning (6am/7am). Pain worse in mornings but improves by mid afternoon. What I would like to ask you all is, is all this normal or do you think I need to increase Pred to maybe 17.5 or 20mg. I am seeing GP next week and I would like a bit of advice from the Forum beforehand.
