Hi everyone - I am a newbie! - I am on 25mg of prednisone a day. Since the diagnosis I feel a little bit spaced out and as if I have a hat on that's just a bit too tight! I feel o.k. and am getting one with daily life but with a head that feels like a headache 'may' happen but so far hasn't. Is this a normal feeling? I am 50 years old and though it was quite a 'young' 50, until this struck! Also the weight gain with Pred - I have monitored my eating strictly since starting on this medication. What sort of doseage causes weight gain? is 25mg a small dose? I have to taper down every two weeks until 10mg. Thanks for any help and/or advice.
