My fibro started the day I finished a prednisone dosepack. It hit my joints from my toes to my shoulders and really hit my elbows and hands. It was like I banged my elbows HARD on something...had that horrible "electrical" pain shooting down into my hands....and it stayed that way for over two weeks! Talk about misery! I could hardly move my hands, let alone lift anything. It made my hands and arms so very weak. It started getting better but took nearly six months for that elbow pain to totally go away. My hands and arms are fine, now.
Prednisone shouldn't help with fibro because it's for inflammation and fibro, it is said, is not an inflammatory illnes. But, I can't say for sure if the Prednisone is causing you the pain. It doesn't make sense but it did happen to me. It was never proven that the Prednisone caused this pain, but it is a heck of a coincidence!
I certainly hope you start to feel better. Flares are horrible but the good thing is that they don't last forever. Better days are ahead! Just take one day at a time right now.
