Feeling tired of everything. I'm 26 yrs old!

I had back surgery (discectomy) one year ago, then 6 weeks after that girls minimal change disease....it's rare I guess...AND I have what I call an unsteady gait. I think it's from the back surgery but nobody knows and it's irritating. Very life altering and I just found out I am relapsing with the MCD. Dr put me back on 60mg a day for a month, I feel like I have the flu now. Today was 1st day on it. Ugh. Not sure if I am just venting or looking for answers...answers are always welcome:) I don't know what to do...just feel like it's one thing after another

    You have been through a great deal. I am assuming you mean that your doctor has put you on 60mgs pd of corticosteroids to try and control the inflammation?
