I called my Rhumy yesterday (twice) and told his nurse my PA was still keeping me up at night so he called me in a prednisone scrip for 5 days.
Day 1 = 25mg
Day 2 = 20mg
Day 3 = 15mg
Day 4 = 10 mg
Day 5 = 5 mg
After looking through many posts regarding prednisone I am hesitant to even pick up the scrip, many stories about rebound flares of PS scare me, I have it on my lower legs, arms and back mainly right now, its not the major issue right now its the pain of the PA that is getting me down but I do not want o make the PS worse just for a few days of relief.
I don't know what to do.
