So I have been on pred for around 6 weeks now. Started at 40mg and reduced by 5mg every two weeks. At the beginning it worked great and my symptoms improved dramatically. I've been on 30mg for two weeks and for the last week I have had more symptoms such as stomach pain after eating, nausea and some diarreha. I don't know if this could be because of my diet (i haven't yet investigated what foods make me worse) or stress at work. Or if it's the disease being active. Anybody have any advice on whether I should continue to reduce? I expected symptoms to come back but I thought it would be at 20mg/15 mg. Also yes i will phone my doctor but I don't know if he will be available as it is bank holiday tomorrow.
