Having a bit of a teary day, which is ridiculous considering some of the horrible things that many people on this site are going through. I don't even have a confirmed lupus diagnosis (I don't think) at the moment. One rheumy said sjorgrens, my gp says mixed connective tissue disease and my current rheumy says lupus and sjorgrens. Anyway, I am also hypothyroid (hashis), and the combination of whatever it all is, and I suspect, not getting my thyroid meds right, is making me feel horrid and unbelievably tired.
I don't eat very much and am very aware of putting on weight....I've put on quite a bit over the last year. Anyway, last week my rheumy said that I should take predisolone (25) for 8 weeks, and then some other steroid for a while on top of the hydroxy because I have a fibrosis in my lung?? I got the medicine, came home....and read the side effects! They sound horrible! I wonder whether anyone with experience can let me know whether they affected your sleep, whether your mood changed, whether you put on weight and anything else. I would love to be as informed as possible before I start taking them.
I'd be very grateful...
