I've been on preds for a fair few months now, mostly at 40mg with a few unsuccessful attempts to wean down.
They make me slightly crazy and anxious and I am learning to deal with the mood swings. My question is does anyone else find they get really bad sugar or salty food cravings? If you do how do you deal with them? it will get to the point where it's all I can think about.
With everything going on in my chest i can't exercise as much as I would have usually done at the moment (which is depressing in its self) so I'm scared of putting on more weight. I've tried eating fruit or veg or even protein when i have a craving or chewing sugar free gum or sucking mints. But nothing gets rid of it. Even if I'm completely full my body will still ask for it (if that makes sense).
I've been finding it hard to adjust to my asthma being as bad as it is at the moment and it sounds pathetic but spending nearly all day everyday fighting these cravings or giving into them and feeling guilty is just not helping. I feel like I'm loosing my mind
