I got down to 4mgs Pred and was reasonably comfortable after a few days adjusting to the new dose. Then I got cocky. Decided to try 3.5. Then I started to struggle again so tried alternating the two for about a week. Was still a bit stiff but no pain so tried to go with 3.5 again . Kept to this for a month but never really got comfortable. Started to get very tired and achey. Then last Wednesday it hit me hard. Pain and stiffness like I haven’t had in ages. I went back to five and I’m starting to feel more comfortable. I saw the Rheumy just at the end of August and not due to see him until February. I might need a prescription before then as I could run low with the increased dose. He has said we might need to take things more slowly but I’d been gung ho to keep marching downward.
I’m a bit fed up with myself but I know it happens. Ah well...Moan over!!
