Hey all! I am new to the board, but I have a question. I am currently in the process of being weened off of prednisone. I am sure that many of you have had some, if not extensive, experience with this drug. I was originally placed on 80mg daily, then 60, then 40, then 30, and now 20. I am very excited because my appetite is getting much more resonable and my thinking is so much more clear. However, I am finding that I am a little tired and my joints are achy sometimes. Should I be concerned? I really want to get off the steroids, because then my nephrologist is going to start weening my off of cell cept, for nephritis. So, should I be prepared to live with joint pain and fatigue, even if my labs say that my kidneys are okay? Is there anyone else who has kidney involvement with a similar experience??? :confused:
