Hey guys. On my last post i had said i was having the worst flare up ever. My GP actually sent me to hospital where i was kept in on a drip and monitored after my heart was beating nearly twice as fast! Im finally getting steroids and couldnt believe the difference after taking them. Only thing is they wear off at night and i still cant get a good sleep as im in so much pain. Is anyone else taking steroids? Do you take all of them at once or should i split them up so i can get a good sleep too? I finally managed to shower and walk the dog today which felt amazing, but i am extremely depressed going to bed knowing i have endure a night of pain and wake up to do it all again. Im really finding it hard to cope. Its week 3, how long do flare ups usually last?
