I've been on Prednisone for about 3-4 months now and I was wondering if anyone who has been on it got tingling in their back?  I only get it around my left shoulderblade and pain.  It is the most uncomfortable feeling in the world.  Please let me know if this is a normal side effect.  Thanks
3 400mg Asacol X 4
40mg Prednisone(Doc moved me up again)
20mg Bentyl(when needed)
20mg Lexapro

I am off the pred now, but when I was on it I got it mostly in the hands and finger joints.
Once off the pred all the tingling went away
