I write this morning with a nice cuppa in hand 😉
I don't often feel the need to step onto my scales, but the last couple of days I could feel my neck thickening...
I know what I weighed a month ago because I was honing my heavenly body for my wedding!😇 So, when I stepped on the scales today and saw I'd put on a stone I was not a happy newly wed.😥
I can only think it's the month of steroids which followed a week of steroids over my wedding/ honeymoon week: 30/20/15/10/5 mg each one for 7 days. I also take 90mg Etoricoxib (Aroxia) daily, along with all my other meds...Inc mtx 20mg weekly. The only other new med I've had is Ferrous Fumarate 3x210mg daily as I'm anemic now. I've not eaten copious amounts- most of the time I'm not even hungry!
Anyone got any ideas? When I stop prednisolone, which is tomorrow, will this weight dissipate? I'm still 'flaring' after diagnosis back in early January and so my bloods are all over the place...
Ps- don't you love predict text? Went to type Aroxia and it came up with vodka!!😁Should have left it like that- would have woken you lovely peeps up!!!!! 😋
