I have been on prednisone now for about 21/2 months and now on higher doses. I have now developed this swelling place on my neck (a doc friend says it is due to the high prednisone). I hurts and my neck aches. Has anyone else had this problem and how did you alleviate the ache and the pain. I also have horrible headaches everyday. Had them prior to meds and not they are worse. Any ideas? Taken all I can get!!
