Saw Dr today - she said my inflammation is less - 7 instead of 13 which it was 2 months ago; Also said she doesn't just look at inflammation but needs to know how the patient feels. I told her I had stabilised on 5.5 mg for about a month as sometimes I felt exhausted and not very well. She said the steroids should make you feel more energetic not less. She suggested reducing by 1/2 mg this month to see if i can manage and if it made any difference to my general wellbeing. What do you think? I don't feel I can do it for a couple of weeks - not in the right frame of mind.......
