I have fibro plus other autoimmune conditions - alopecia, hypothyroidism, lichen sclerosis - and as a last line of treatment I have been put on steroids to a) help alleviate the pain and
b) reduce the chances of any other autoimmune conditions occurring.
I had 3 infusions over 3 days in hospital and on Friday started 40mg prednisone for 2 weeks lowering to 20mg after that.
My question is - is it normal to feel so I'll? I have some of the side effects that are on the patient info sheet - metallic mouth, flushed face and thirst - but I am totally wiped out and as weak as anything.
