PMRPro, do you know what triggers your back episodes? Do you increase your prednisone or just ride it out?
I started prednisone a year ago and have been back pain free for a year so this episode is a shock. Prior to that, neck, shoulder and upper back pain and other PMR issues ruled my life.
At first I thought this might be a kidney infection but doctor said no. By now I have tried everything and am still in acute pain and spasm.
Even though it is 1:17 AM here, I think l need to go ahead and take the additional 2 mg of prednisone to bring myself up to 12 from 10. I am not going to be able to sleep if these spasms don’t let up but would gladly trade insomnia for some relief.
