Haven’t posted in a while but on the forum everyday.
I started tapering from 15mg Pred about 6 weeks ago now! a week before starting on 12.5 I did every other day 15 then 12.5 and felt ok no issues I stayed on 12.5 for 3 weeks went back the drs before starting next taper to make sure all was ok and did the same 12.5 then 10 for a week again no issues so started 10mg last week the same week as started back at work full time after 8 wks return to work.
After 3 days I was wiped out and woke on Saturday with the familiar pains in legs bottom and arms so I went back up to 12.5 after reading on here about now allowing the inflammation to build up.
I work in an office and have a commute from north wales to Liverpool OH drops me at the door for 8 in the morning and I get the train home I’m starting to really worry that I won’t be able to handle full time hrs, stress levels are starting to rise which isn’t helping as I’m also learning to drive and have my test booked for next Friday I’ve been learning on and off for 33 yrs since I was 17 I’m 50 in January 😊
I can’t take anymore time off sick as I’ve reached the 6 months mark before going on half pay I had 2 disks removed and my cervical spine fused in April drs think it was this that triggered the PMR.
Thanks for reading and listening x
