for the past three weeks, it is just hard to walk, my joints really hurt, stairs are hard to do. I talked to my Nephrologist and he said it was the pred masking it.........but I am so sick of this. I do the treadmill for 30 min a day, I need to keep active, once I get moving I am ok, but if I sit for any length of time getting up is so difficult and I walk really really slow. It is kind of embarrasing. I try to stretch in my cube for a few seconds before walking out of it......I shuffle.....uuugh!
