Is the tapering experience with a steroid sparer different from that without? Now down to 9 mg from 14 when started 125mg azathioprine last October.
Just beginning to get symptoms, muscle aches, slightly tender scalp and jaw pain. But i don't feel the usual exhaustion that goes with the territory. Inflammatory markers are slowly rising but still well within normal ranges.
So I don't know whether to stay at 9 for a bit or press on, as I am keen to get off the pred as it is destroying my bones. The family has noticed my new found energy so the muscle problems may be using them more, the jaw and head pains are harder to explain away although I sure the rheumatologist will do so, see previous posts about invisible neck problems!
