Pain from ulcers while tapering Prednisone

I had been on 40mg of Prednisone for a while and the doctor had me taper to 30mg a little over a week ago. I seemed to be doing fine on the taper with no returning symptoms. But a few days ago, I began to have that soreness in my intestines from the ulcers. I hadn't had this pain for quite a while. I am wondering if anyone knows if the returning pain is because of the tapering? I have also been trying to do a little more work (just got out of the hospital almost three weeks ago), so I was wondering if the increased activity could be a factor? I find that when I sit down for a while and rest, the pain nearly or completely goes away. When I am up and moving, it increases.

Anyone have an similar experiences?
