thanks monidad, yes, I have had some times where my hands have cramped up and I thought it was the pred, just from holding a book for a long time or my hand holding something in a certain position for a long time. I was worried I was getting arthritis or something, glad to know it's the pred = )
also, my legs and feet do cramp up some (my feet have always cramped up now and then). A banana a day does not keep all cramps away. I am drinking cran juice w/added potassium, same amount as a banana and that seems to have helped a bit this past week.
