Hi all, new to the forum and was looking to maybe get some advice. I was diagnosed with UC about 6-7 years ago and have been pretty lucky when it comes to flares as I have had 3 within that time frame. I am just now getting over one with the help of prednisone, but I am having a major problem. I was on 40mg of pred for 2 weeks, then stepped down to 35mg for a week and have just started my first week at 30mg. However, yesterday morning I woke up with almost intolerable pain in both my knees, to the point where I can barely stand and walk around. Is this a side effect of the pred? Has this happened to anyone else? How long should I expect this to last or should I call my doc? I am taking tylenol to relieve some of the pain, but it does not in any way eliminate it...I had been fine before 2 days ago...Can anyone offer advice?
