It is possible but somewhat unusual for the muscle spasms to be caused by prednisone withdrawal. But you might want to see your doctor for a tapering dose of prednisone and a check on other causes of muscle cramps such as electrolyte problems.
Side Effects of Steroids / Predisone Withdrawl
I recently had brohitist( severe cold ) as part of the treatment I was givin two steriod shots within a 2 week period and also had to take prednisone 10MG that lasted for 5 weeks 3 times a day. Then when the medicine was out, I was taken off, no smaller dose, or nothing to replace it. I was just done, NOW about a 3 days later, I am having terrible muscle spasming in both my legs which are VERY PAINFUL!! and charlie horses in the bottom of my feet these two are happening daily and once in a while charlie horse’s in my hands, also very pain fulful. is this from the steriod shots and prednisone 10MG pills? And what can I do to stop the spasms, and charlie horses?
