Questions???

Hi.   I am a 47yr old woman diagnoised with Temporal Artreitis (Giant cell ) in Nov 07. I have been on prednisolone since then. Starting at 60mgs and now down to 30mgs. I have been having a hard time with it all.My question for the moment is,which is more dangerous? Taking such large doses of streroids or the illness?I am aware of the side effects of both.If I drop down to less than 30 mgs the pain etc starts again.Or do i take less and take painkillers?  I would be grateful for any imformation. thank you. cath278.
