Get to the ER: You don't say why you are on prednisone. You could have a new compression fracture in your spine. Your electrolytes could be off. Not being able to stand up is a bit of a deal breaker and makes this an emergency.

Could be: Dehydration or electrolyte imbalance increase sodium slightly and or potassium slightly on a regular basis should help.
