Has anybody ever gotten menstrual cramps from reducing the Prednisone? I went down to 10mg last Wednesday and over the weekend had what felt like pretty bad cramps. I am nowhere near the time for me period – not for another 9 weeks actually. I remember last time I got down to 10mg back in June I had something similar, really bad cramps (what felt like menstrual cramps) a few days after I tapered. No spotting though and my BMs are still formed. Had a little blip over the weekend but thinking it was due to a new probiotic I tried and haven’t seen any blood or anything.
I’m hoping it isn’t cramps in my colon, but it did feel almost too low to be that.
