Welcome and I am glad you found us. I have been on prednisone way too long and it can really hide signs of a serious infection and compromise how our body fights one off. I vote call your primary doc. Every time I have had a nagging sore throat, it turned out to be strep. Watch out for signs of a fever, above the kind many of us suffer at night. Keep us posted, we do worry about each other,
God knows, even if I don't....
