Our expert says:
As you have experienced, cortico-steroids should be stopped gradually. If not, withdrawal symptoms like you have been experienced are common. Symptoms can last for 4 to 8 weeks. I suggest that you are patient, as the symptoms will subside. If your symptoms worsens, consult your doctor immediately. Ibuprofen can be used to treat your joint pain.
