The doctor has me coming down off the prednisone 5mg every week, but this week had been really bad. I was only at 40mg to start with and now I’m at 30mg. Today I blood in my stool and I've been cramping all week. Is there something I can do so the pain will go away? I called my doctor and left a message but no call back yet. I'm not hungry again and I'm getting scared.
