I really don't know where to turn. I was told by my rheumy to stay at 5 mg until April but I can't see how I am ever going to reduce how I feel at the moment. I am totally exhausted most of the time. I don't have any pain anywhere, I haven't since I came off steroids this time last year then had to go back on because of a flare. The reason I came off steroids was to have a synacthan test to see if my adrenals were working they were then but I doubt they are now because I immediately had to go back on steroids. I thought I had a UTI last week so I took a urine sample to the doctors 11 days ago, they have not contacted me at all until last night when someone rang at 7.30 ( the surgery closes at 6pm} to arrange a telephone consultation on Monday as you can imagine I am worried as to what they want and also annoyrd at the way they have organised everything. Sorry for moaning
