My rheumatologist just started me back on short term prednisone to see if it would help the horrible aching I'm having in my legs. I've started with 20 mg for 3 days, then 10 then 5 ....

Anyway... does prednisone lower body temperature like NSAID's do?

I've just finished my 3 days of 20 mg ....not much releif from the pain. I did have bloodwork done before starting and will get the results next week. I hope the prednisone kicks in soon! :sigh:

Hi Michelle,

If I am flaring prednisone definitely lowers my temperature. On a daily basis it doesn't seem to.

Good luck with the rest of the prednisone.

Take care,
Lazylegs
