I was diagnosed in August, after hurting since July 15, 2018. The prednisone worked after about 1-3 weeks of using it at 15 mg a day. The pain totally left, but after reducing the dose to 12.5 mg, it came back with a vengeance. I went back to 15 mg. Now it isn't as bad as it was, except sometimes in the a.m. before i get up. I just started taking CDX today. Hopefully it will decrease or hopefully go away. I'm again decreasing and am down to 12 mg, with no change..
