Pred MANIA, nobody explains to you the extreme side effects that you can get, I was told that I was just hypersensitive to Pred. I've been 'hypersensitive' to every movement on the different amounts that I have taken, starting at 50 mg (PMR/GCA) diagnosed after biopsy in August this year, now at 30 mg and fairly settled at moment after a couple of weeks settling, although do get exhausted thighs on any uphill challenge! The one thing that I am quite nervous about is driving, normally a very confident driver, but since this has happened, I can drive to a destination, say 45 mins away. To return a little later, and say 10 mins into journey I seem to be losing concentration, so open windows etc. Yesterday I actually felt that I might have to stop again which would extend the time before reaching home.
The problem is, I live in fairly rural area, 45 mins drive to hospital, very restricted public transport (would take 1.5 hrs to get there, return restricted if running).
Question, does anyone else have this happen to them? Is it a common problem? If it is going to be commonplace, I will have to make alternative arrangements!
