Hi Everyone, feeling confused as i have been off Preds since Oct 2017 after tapering very slowly. Have generally been doing ok with minor occasional aches. My neck has felt stiff for a while now, had physio which didn't help, x-Ray shows age related wear & tear. The top of my right arm has been quite painful at times since December, my left arm not so bad. Been to my GP twice in the last two months, first time he put me back on 2mg of pred for a week which offered a small amount of relief. Second visit two weeks ago I was given 15mg of codeine & paracetamol 4 times per day & volterol (no longer taking), this helped slightly for a few days.
Pain is worse at night, not sleeping well & worried as GP does not want me to take the preds again. I recently took a few days off, have an appointment this Friday as I am not coping too well, not sure what to do or if there's any other pain relief?
