Hi all!

For the first time in 13 years I am off Prednisolone!!  

I have been stepping down over the last year until I was only taking 5 mg every third day in middle of July and finally stopped it completely second week in August.
I think I am still suffering withdrawal symptoms, but I am not sure- that is where you all come in : )
How long should the symptoms last? Mine are muscle and ligament pain in both hands and both feet and loss of strength in hands. I am having this since end of July- so a good 7-8 weeks. My achilles seems to tighten up every time I sit down/ drive/ sleep as well and I am limping the first 20 steps until it stretches out again.
Overall I don't have much energy, sleep is deep but with lots of dreams, so I tend not to feel refreshed in the mornings.

Maybe it's something else? Any ideas??

It makes sense that you'd have withdrawal symptoms after taking a powerful drug for 13 years!

Beyond the general idea of "healing from the drug" you may also need to build up your body, to fix naturally whatever weakness you had been taking the predisone for.

Still, 7 weeks is a long time to be feeling weak and ill. It may be "normal" after so much time on medication, but it also may be a sign that you need some extra help with something. Ideal would be to work with a naturopathic physician to help re-build your system. Conventional doctors may not know how to fix things without drugs, but they can still evaluate you and figure out if something is "wrong" and if so, what, and then you can research natural treatments.
