Hi, have permission to come off steroids - hooray. Possibly didn't even need them in the first place - grrrrr.
I have been reducing a bit fast, I know, but am now on 3mg/day, and am now reducing as instructed at 1mg/month.
Is it normal to have (amongst many other delights) waves of almost uncontrollable drowsiness? There are times when I can barely keep my eyes open. Never experienced this sort of thing before taking steroids.
Also many other symptoms: muscles weak and aching; on a good day used to be able to run up the stairs, now everything hurts by half way up; dizzy, faint, no balance; everything very dry - especially very dry, sore, stinging eyes with some blurring and new floaters. The list goes on.
Anybody know if (a) all this is what I can expect from steroid withdrawal and (b) if there's anything to ease the pain while I'm waiting for it to get out of my system?
