Hi Chelle,

Prednisone always gives me horrible side effects. I am currently taking 10mg, but when I increased it to 20mg I had a lot of side effects, including chest pain. I'm not sure if it's the same chest pain you're having though. The rheumy believed it was GERD. I also had palpitations and back pain. And only had 20mg for a week before I was told to reduce it back to 10mg.

I would probably let your rheumy know about these side effects. I'm sorry I'm not very helpful! But I hope you feel better and these side effects go away soon.
