I am tapering from 7mg to 6mg with DSNS method. I also take 10mg Leflunomide and my last BT last month have improved, ESR 24 and CRP 0.5mg.
I would like to know what kind of side effects of Predisone reduction other members of this forum have had in the past?
I have often a dull headache, hot flashes and then feel suddenly cold. I also feel dizzy, weak and exhausted, but have no pain.
I saw my Rheumy on 27th Feb.I can get an appointment with her only every 4 months.
By that time she doesn't remember me.So she spends half of my time reading my history on the computer. I showed her the book of Kate Gilbert. She looked at it for a minute and handed it back to me.
I came to the conclusion that rheumy doctors are only good for giving me prescriptions for drugs and blood tests.
I have learned much more from this support group and I am very grateful to all of you for all the information.
Due to the suppressed immune system I got a very painful inflammation in one eye.
My oculist sent me for different culture test as she discovered corneal abscess. Tests were all OK. Treatment with 4 different eye drops, eye gel at night and warm water
compresses.Need to set alarm clock to remember all hours the drops.
Thank you all for your very much appreciated information.
