Hi bec,
Wow 15 years on pred, that is a long time.
I was on it for 7 years and finally got off it in April this year due to the fact that Humira kicked in for me.
I experienced all of the above but am slowly getting rid of the headaches. I am still grumpy and fatigued and there are days where I wish I could take 20mg just to pump me back up again, but that would be dumb :-)   I guess each month off it has seen me get less withdrawal symptoms so I will be patient and hopefully feel less grumpy and fatigued.
Hope you are successful in getting off the pred.
Good luck bec :-)
Take care
