Yeah I was wondering that also. It gets so bad that I can't get to sleep at night. My doc said the Prednisone will help that but we'll see. I'll ask my doc when I see her again in three weeks. I was already having arthritis in my knees really bad but this back stuff just started. Like you say, it hurts mainly in my lower back but sometimes in the middle of my back and in between my shoulder blades. I've also noticed my left shoulder blade hurts a lot when I am sitting down. We're too young to feel like elderly people!
