I have worked my way down to 5 mg prednisone, and my body seems to be holding up. I can definitely feel the difference between the 20mg dose and the 5 mg dose.
Before on higher dose, I felt invincible. Now I get some pain, but the stiffness and fatigue is not near about at the level it was when I didnt take the steroids and I have not missed a day of work in at least 3 weeks. Plus I am still losing weight.
Yeah. I think I might like to stay at least ib the 5 mg dose of steroids a few weeks longer.
They really are keeping me functional.
