As my hands had been better, last week I dropped to 12 mg from 12.5. the last three days I can hardly move my hands and wrists first thing and yesterday it hung around all day. Maybe not helped by cutting up oranges for marmalade. This morning it is even affecting my typing (and I have typed for the past 50+ years! Even had difficullty in getting the Pred out of the blister pack! Presumably I should give the lower dose a chance to kick in? Am having a blood test this week and seeing new GP next week, for result of that and DEXA scan I had before Christmas.
