I am on 60 mg Pred having been diagnosed two weeks ago. I am utterly exhausted with the lack of sleep. I only seem to be sleeping 3-4 hours a night and that in such turmoil with night sweats etc. I wake at 12.30, 2.30, 3.30 and am unable to get back to sleep after 5. Its odd how regular the timings are. I cannot get back to sleep for ages between each waking. Was in tears this morning I felt so miserable. Am going to a herbalist to get a sleeping draught today. So hope it works. I try to sleep for an hour in the afternoon but family comings and goings tend to wake me - I am a very light sleeper at the best of times. I guess it will get better when they cut the steroids down but that is not for 4 weeks.
