Hi everyone. Getting myself in a bit of a state which isn't hard at the moment! Tearful worrying mess. Just come back up to 7.5 mg pred after trying to taper to 5mg. Had what I thought was a flare up after feeling dreadful for a week, usual symptoms but also the worse dizziness so called the hospital and they said up steroids back to 7.5 and have bought my appointment forward to two weeks time, now I am panicking encase it was withdrawrel symptoms from the steroids rather than a flare and have gone back up on them and read that going up and down can be dangerous! Help! Confused and upset! How can you tell the difference between a flare and withdrawrel. Now will have to go through all that again trying to come down. Does anyone else have these symptoms coming down or flare as soon as coming down? or have to keep going up and down on steroids?
