Hi, I am going to Hydra ( Greek Island) for a week. It is rocky with cliffs and has no vehicles. What sounded idyllic a few months back now seems like a potential nightmare. Thanks to PMRpro I have invested in walking poles. My question is about Prednisolone. I currently hover around 14.5mgs but I am able to manage my condition carefully with lots of rest etc. I am not without symptoms at this dose but I am coping, just. Is it legitimate to anticipate additional physical stress and up the dose a bit? I haven't really felt good since, my starting dose of 20mgs ( the honeymoon period). I had 2 days in London, taking it easy, but could hardly get out of the taxi at the end and felt a bit desperate at points. Can Prednisolone be used this way? To compensate for unavoidable exertion ( the flight, the ferry, the climbing). Can anyone suggest what I could do to head off trouble. I don't want to end up being airlifted to Athens aargh!
