I'd love to know if you nice people think I should be concerned about my swollen feet and ankles. I know this problem is one of the numerous possible side effects of taking pred, but I also know that it can be a sign of various nasty conditions.
My pred dosage was increased from 25 mg to 40mg per day a couple of weeks ago when I had a spike in GCA symptoms. I reduce to 35mg in a couple of days. I had a bit of swelling before but it has definitely got worse since I went to 40mg. I can't wear most of my shoes, all flat and very sensible as I'm definitely one for comfort rather than fashion where footwear is concerned.
As well as the swelling, my feet tend to feel rather hot and I have mild itching and prickly sensations, amounting to faint pins and needles in the soles of my feet.
All comments and advice will be gratefully received.
