I was diagnosed with MPGN in 5/14. I had two infusions of Rituxan and then on prednisone for 20 months. I tapered off 15 mg for a year. My last dose was 9/17/16 and it is now the end of January 2017. Getting off prednisone has been the most difficult thing I have ever done. Severe pain in joints and muscles. I'm somewhat better but I also have a long way to go. I do think walking once I get up and start moving is helpful. I'm 79 years old and never had arthritis prior to my CKD. No NSAIDs for me so very little helps the pain. I'm beginning to think this will take a year to feel normal again. Anyone else had this problem.
