I was just diagnosed with Crohn's about 3 weeks ago. Been on Prednisone since diagnosis and am just now beginning to taper. I was taking 20mg 2x/day and my doctor just lowered the dose to 10mg 2x/day. During the last two nights I have been awake in the very early morning (4-6am) with incredibly painful joint pain in my knees. After doing a little research this seems common, but is there any way to relieve the pain/cramping? I just want to sleep and it seems nothing is helping (ie. shifting positions, walking around, etc).
