I woke up this morning and my skin on my neck and shoulders was very tender to touch.  When i press, it seems to not be muscular.  Tuesday I took another step in tappering down my prednisone.  I am now at 20 mg.  This is the ONLY thing that has changed in my life in the past 2 days, so it is the only thing I can point the finger at.
Anyway..... just wondering if this was a side effect that anyone else has had, and if I should be concerned?

I choose joy... I will invite my God to be the God of circumstance. I will refuse the temptation to be cynical... the tool of the lazy thinker. I will refuse to see people as anything less than human beings, created by God. I will refuse to see any problem as anything less than an opportunity to see God. ~Max Lucado
