Diagnosed with GCA in Dec 2018. Started on 80 mg prednisone, now tapered down to 6 mg. Has been relatively easy until getting under 7 mg. Areas of old injuries (knees, back, etc.) are starting to have discomfort.
Is this the zone where the adrenal glands are not yet producing cortisol and the steroid dosage is not what the body needs?
BTW the inflammation markers are low, and the pain is not symmetrical, so I am reasonably confident I am not having a flare.
