Had a water infection as a side effect of pred which caused me to have a bad fall and a month in hospital (no bones broken luckily). This has caused me to lose my mobility. can do very little and now need to use walking frame to get around the house. Last week I had my eyes tested and the optician said I have cataracts coming as a result of steroids and have had pred since March. I have just reduced pred to 11mg which means I will be on them for a while yet. Side effects seem very bad and have loads of bruising. I wondered if anyone else had suffered similar problems.
