I too experience joint pain after taper from predizone. I usually starts a couple weeks after the taper and goes about 1 month or so. I even got a shot for pred shot last spring for bad sinus infection that just wouldn't go away and...2 weeks later..debilitating joint pain. It is so depessing to not be able to move well and dealing with CD too! I understand. It does eventually get better!!!
