That sounds like me tapering down on my pain meds. I will taper up and down (as instructed by my pain mgmt doc) and when we are tapering down my skin crawls, I'm sweaty, and bitchy.. and when we are tapering up a little it makes me nauseated and I sleep constantly and have to carry around saltines. I hate prednisone for this same reason. It gets you all juiced up then when you have to taper off of it you feel like crap! HANG IN THERE GIRLIE!!
