My question is... what activities are safe to do on a pred reduction? Should I just sit around and do nothing?
I'm currently at 5 mg, and will be tapering 1 mg every 5 to 7 days until off. I have been getting the usual pred withdrawal headaches that I always get. I went to the driving range today which was pretty deserted and hit a few hundred balls. My energy level was crap but the fresh air and sunshine was nice.
Basically I listen to my body and don't push it too hard if I'm feeling sluggish. No marathons for example or similar physically draining activities. Light to reasonably moderate exercise is fine though.
Cortisol is the stress hormone, so don't go too crazy with things until your body adjusts. For me that will be months because I have been on pred since Dec 1st of last year.
