Q: Quickest regimen to wean off prednisone safely. This was second day of 4 (444,333,222,111). Bad brain fog this morning. Feeling weird. Spacey. Some irregular heartbeat, worthless till noon. Mostly desk job.
Face flushes soon after dose. Have had lower back pain bilaterally, area of kidneys. Tests show kidneys & liver fine, colonoscopy clear (I'm 62 male). Doc thinks it may be nerve impingement though I kinda disagree. Put me on prednisone as a hope.
Original pain a couple months ago. Driving , sudden weakness. Home to bed. A week later, same thing. Off work two weeks. In middle of that was in ER overnight; pain got me to tears.
On prednisone now. Worse than orig problem & wanna d/c it quickly as possible P

Symptoms:  Bad brain fog. Worthless till noon. Some irregular heartbeat
