That's a good question, but I don't know the answer. My understanding is that prednisone suppresses the immune system in order to keep our out-of-whack antibodies from attacking our organs, such as our joints, and therefore causing inflamation and pain. Maybe someone here will know more about muscle spasms. Besides, it's 1:00 am and my ordinarily foggy mind is nearly asleep.
But do let me welcome you to a wonderful forum full of great folks who are informative, nurturing and very supportive of each other. We love it when new people join us and would like to learn more about you. I do think someone else here might be able to address your question.
Good luck with your sinus infection. They make you feel awful.
