Well, I posted a thread talking about this horrible flare I'm going through and the most painful back pain ever, and i was wondering if anyone else experiences any numbness and heavyness in their hands and forearms due to the prednisone. This has happened before after a visit to the E.R. but I thought they just gave me more than usual because I was in such much pain but I'm pretty sure it is an allergic reaction. Yesterday I had to take 6 pills at 4mg each. Your opinions are much appreciated Thanks everyone!
