Last night I had my first serious flare up. I had reduced my Predisilone to 45 mg from 50mg and my rheumy had increased the Pred sparing tablets to 4 per day. Yesterday I did not feel well and was clammy and tired all day. Of course, I did too much as I was already committed to running a street party forthe Queens 90th, so did some things towards that. At night I was suddenly shaking uncontrolably for several hours, pouring in sweat, feeling awful, with all my old symptoms back - luckily I have never had eye problems. Has anyone had this awful shaking? It all came as a shock to me. You just don't realise the illness is there just below the surface. I took two Preds in the night which stopped the shaking and today went back to 50mg. Left message for my rheumy but he is away at a conference. Feeling better today but still not right. Feeling depressed by it all.
