Commended 15mgs prednisolone 10 days ago.......what a miracle for the first few days, now I seem to have reached a plateau. I am great compared to how I was ( the NA had to dress and undress me when I saw the rheumatologist). I have minor neck stiffness but still feel like I'm sitting on my bones. I can however drive my car....not attempting anything too ambitious! I take my prednisolone as soon as I wake in the morning but am having a lot of sleep disturbance and when I wake I am literally wide awake....like this morning didn't go to sleep till 1ish and was awake by 5. Got out of bed changed the sheets put the hoover round and now am completely bushed.
I am in my fifties, a full time nurse and have not worked since prior to my diagnosis. I want to go back as soon as possible but don't see that happening before the end of the month ( and that is when the steroids start to reduce...dreading it already).
So I'd be grateful for any advice and how others have dealt with this dreadful fatigue.
