Am definitely needing a bit of sympathy at the moment. I am on my 4th attack needing steroids since the beginning of January and feeling rubbish. I had one about 10 days ago and only just managed to avoid going to A&E. My peak flow went down to 180 (cut off point on my plan is 170 - personal best 550), had pred for 5 days plus an extra 3 days to taper (to try and avoid the usual 3 day headache after a course of pred) and then not 3 days later it is off again, peak flow this evening down to 190. My face is looking fatter, restless legs have started again, I know I am in for a few sleep deprived nights and have definitely been a bit grumpy today. On the plus side, my lovely husband cooked a really nice dinner so I didn't have to do anything. Apologies for the moan!!
