you're still on pred, right? I hate to tell you--- it's gonna get much worse before it gets better! My joint pains lasted about
2 months after I took my last dose of pred. And once you're actually off the stuff, the pains seem to get worse! It's horrible- I shuffled around too! You feel like you're about
100 years old. I've always started at 60mgs too, & tapered over the course of months.
