Hi, I am curious to know if anyone else has "bad days" in between "good days". I am 47 and still work full-time. I find that when I have been very busy at work, the next day I have a lot of pain in either my neck and shoulders or my buttocks. I work 12.5hr shifts as a nurse so am on my feet all day, the bonus is I have 4 days off a week to rest. Does anyone else have days like this and what painkillers do you take? I find Paracetamol does not touch the pain, but Co-Codamol makes me too sleepy to work. Yesterday I had a lovely massage, and this morning awoke with neck seized up, yet today is my day for reducing Prednisolone from 10mgs to 9mgs. I really need advice to get on top of this in order to continue managing at work. Don't get me wrong a lot of days the steroids do a brilliant job and I have very little pain. Thanks
