I was told a while ago i was steriod dependant and steriod resistancebut i took little notice of it. i have just moved home and got a new consultant who brought this up as i dpont look like someone who has been taken high dose steriods for three years.
i am a bit confused because how can you be dependant on something as well as resistant to it because my initial thought was resisiatnce = it doesnt work on the body and dependance to me wouldbe that the body relies on ti but how can you ahve both.
i am now goign to be tried on methotrexate (sp?) or somehting similar as a steriod sparing agent i ahve read the thread on it but just confused about the resistance thing.
