So your on 30 mg of pred a day? 5mg tablets so you should take 6 per day and should have been given 84 tablets , your chemist should also have given you a blue steroid warning card , check the doses on the labels and the amount you have left , does the chemist owe you any?


I hear you Angela. I am so sorry that you have so many issues to be sorted.

Can you revisit the doctors? Is there another person there who can go through it all with you and correct the dosage?

Your distress is so evident in your post. We share your pain.

Everyone, here shares some part of your issues. My hair is falling out, once my best feature. I am steeling myself as I have decided that the stress over my hair must stop, as stress makes everything worse and I am going to see a wig maker this week. Small beer compared to you, but a solution to one of my dilemmas.

I wish I had a magic wand I could use for you to correct all the ways your body is letting you down. Hang in there Angela, we are with you and support you.

Please use this site to ask for advice, as you have done. There are a lot of people here who will compare notes with you and offer advice.

Is your rheumy addressing your symptoms? I am in awe of your strength so far to deal with your issues since so long ago.

Please take care of yourself And try to deal with one thing at a time if you can, i think you need to see someone else and take a list of the symptoms which are giving you so much stress.

I wish I could do more than offer a hand of support.

I shall watch your progress. Please come back to tell us how you get on.

Rant all you want, we all need it sometimes, believe me.

Best wishes
