I have had PMR for several months. Started out on 20mg and am now at 12.5.....taking my time. Dr. wants me to get to 10mg and stay there for a while. As I started tapering I was having hot flashes too. They went away as I continue tapering but the shakiness persists. It's worse in the morning but I checked my fasting blood sugar and it was fine. Is anyone experiencing shakiness? Will it go away as I lower my dosage of prednisone? Does the shakiness have nothing to do with the prednisone? The nurse practitioner didn't seem to think it was the prednisone. Help!
