I have been on prednisolone for a week and a half and am seeing my gp soon for a review. I have had a rapid response to the drugs so from the information on your wonderful website I think the diagnosis is probably correct. Having read the Quick and Kirwen article I wonder if I should suggest to the GP that I stop the steroids for a short while. If the symptoms return would this confirm the diagnosis? Is it safe to stop the steroids as I guess that after this short space of time my body hasn't yet given up producing its own? I don't want to be locked into long term steroids if the diagnosis could be incorrect.
