The comparitive experiences have been an eye opener. None of this is gleened at the doctors office. No suggestion of pamphlets, no helpful printouts regarding support in New Zealand. Nor could i visualise what was going on in my system. Then low mood in the mornings as i began to taper and up to 12 hour bad times starting 2:30 am.
Mainly my focus is whether i can reduce pain. It sounds tricky at best finding the right level of prednisone. We were on the right track then the flare. I am wondering if we look at the pain cycle if there is a time of day optimum for taking Pred. to reduce the effects of inflamation.
