I've been on 20mg steroids for a month for PMR and yesterday dropped to 17.5mg. My shoulders are feeling quite stiff today and I wondered if this is normal and if it takes a while to adjust to the new dose or if I wasn't quite ready to reduce yet. I started on 40mg early June, should have been 20 but my doc didn't get the report from rheumatologist in time. Once she did I reduced down to 20 in 5mg drops over a few weeks with no setbacks so quite surprised to feel stiffness with this 2.5mg drop. Hopefully it's just that I'm adjusting to the new dose but just wondered if it's normal to encounter discomfort with a new drop sometimes and not others.
