I've had this condition since May and I feel that family doesn't give it its due. The high doses of prednisone,( 60-40 mgs three times so far, because of returning symptoms ) have so many side effects. I can manage four hours of activity in the morning right after I take the Pred., but then I need to take a nap and rest the rest of the day. I am too fatigued to watch grandkids or grand dogs. My driving skills are problematic and I want to refuse transporting the grands because of lack of concentration and slow response time. I have said no but am not heard.
Name the Pred. side effect, I have it, from the lack of sleep, nervousness, fatigue, irratibility, muscle weakness, etc. Doesn't the family see my moon face, swollen black and blue eyes, the fact that I can't get up from a seated position. I'm not looking forward to years more of this!
