I am now taking Tocilizumab by injection and have made an amazing recovery having been so very ill for over 18 months. Now I am down to 5 1/2 mg of Pred and have begun to have really bad pain at night. In my knees, shoulders, hips - keeping me from getting to sleep and even two codydramol and one paracetamol max have little effect. Usually, I am good with pain but this is really bad.
I wonder if this is due to adrenal glands beginning to work or some kind of withdrawal symptoms. Has anyone else had this. I have gone back up to 6 mg - I reduce only 1/2 mg at a time and then only every two or three weeks. I haven't posted for some time and would appreciate your excellent help.
