The past month is has gotten really painful sometimes to get up after I have been sitting or when I wake up in the morning. I walk like my Grandma........then after I am up for a bit I am better. But my joints hurt and the bottoms of my feet hurt.
Is this typical of the pred? I see my Doc on Wed so I will go over it then but in the meantime, any thoughts, experiences or theories are welcome.
I HATE PRED!
