Please correct me if I am wrong. When tapering....... steroid withdrawal pain is the body adjusting to less steroid, but if it cannot adjust it will lead to an increase of inflammation and therefore more pain. Eventually this will lead to a flare. The accumulated inflammation is what causes the pain. That's when more pred is called in to get rid of it. So..... IF there is no pain there is no accumulated inflammation and tapering is sucessful. Correct?
Does anything take care of the pain? Tylenol or any other pain med? Tylenol did little if anything, for me. I know PMR is not affected by tylenol or anything else..... only pred will get rid of it.
