Hi there,

Have you had any fevers or chills?

How many days of prednisone did you take?

Expert:  Dr. Scott replied 11 days ago.

You are most likely experiencing steroid induced myalgia.

You can try heat, rest, acetaminophen, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs to help your symptoms.

Expert:  Dr. Scott replied 11 days ago.

It should clear up in about 5-7 days once your body starts to adapt again without steroids.
