I was happy with the Rheumy's December 12th plan to "taper down" from 60 mg of Pred to 30 mg, (dropping 5 mg a week) and then slowing down and re-evaluating at 30 mg. 60 to 55, no problem. 55 to 50, no problem. 50 to 45... but throw in Christmas, seasonal stress, too much red wine, increased activity, non-routine sleeping schedule and WHAM, apparently a big freaking problem.
This past week has seen the return of a mild headache, a tiny tinge of pain in my temple, a slight band of tightness and achy, tension across my shoulders, neck, upper back and collar bones, and an annoying migratory pain that moves from the right hip, to the left hip, down the leg and back up again.
Hmmmm? "Hey Doc..." Let's talk.
