Are you taking dexamethasone long term or in short courses? Unfortunately you can not do anything about the joint and muscle pain caused by dexamethasone. Just rest as much as possible. I know of someone who had dexamethasone as part of their chemo medicines and they had extreme muscle weakness and bone/joint pain. It is quite debilitating. All the best.
