Been on Pred for 2 years now for AIH. Started at 60 mg and slowly weaned down to 5mg. Went on Imuran in order to get off pred.
Have been on 5mg for probably 6 months now. Blood counts have been great, so Dr. said stop pred, take 5mg every other day for 2 weeks then stop.
Well, I did if for 1 week then stopped. I feel like crap. Terrible joint & muscle pain, could not lift right arm for 1 day last week.
If i sit for for than 10 minutes, its hard to get up, and then I move really slow.
Also, not sure if its related but my throat hurts, and the right side of my chest hurts when I take a deep breath.
Just basically feel like a truck ran over me.
Has this happened to anyone else here?
