Hi All. I wrote a few months ago asking for advice on stopping Prednisolone and going onto Hydrocortisone as tests showed my adrenal gland wasn't functioning adequately due to long term Steriods. I have GPA. Diagnosed 2005.
Well I did try and I was ok for 2 weeks then developed muscle aches and joint pain which gradually worsened over the next 2 weeks making life miserable and painful. I went back on my previous dose of 5mg Prednisolone a week ago and things are gradually improving thank goodness.
This is just an update but would be interested in knowing if anyone else has experience of this. Best wishes.
