Starting a new thread as I have a question rather than random moans.
How much better should I be at the end of my pred course? Gp said see how I feel Sunday (last dose today) and go back Monday if needed, but didn't say what feeling better consisted of. I know that usually I can work fine whilst on pred and am usually much better at end of course so can manage with gradually reducing ventolin, whereas this time I'm still needing quite a bit, and any exertion at all is knocking me out and making me very uncomfortable.
But then I wonder whether I just need to get back into things and accept having symptoms and needing lots of ventolin for a while. What will happen if I go back to work when I'm not better? How do I know whether I need more pred?
I currently have three options:
1. Stay at home on Monday and go back to gp
2. Go to work and see gp afterwards
3. Go to work and see how I am
What do people think? Really need some advice. Surprisingly I'm leaning more towards staying home, which isn't usual for me, but don't know whether I'm just a bit wobbly about going back after so long off.
