I have been on predisone for 8 years and have recently tapered off. My diagnosis was polymyalgiarheumatica and this seems to be the only drug to stop pain. My feet, hands and fingers are swollen, I have dry flaky skin, Is there another drug without all the side effects to ease the pain. My major joints are also very painful. Should I go back on the presidnone?
