Hello everyone and as always thank you for your post, encouragement and kind words. I am on 60 mg of prednisone and drop to 55 tomorrow. So far as long as I stay away from carbs and sugars I can keep the steroid rages minimized. Chronic fatigue is my biggest problem along with learning not to overdo it. I just can't get through a normal active day. If I have a day full of activities, like working, I hit the wall the next day. I can barely keep my eyes open and my muscles, especially hips and thighs just don't want to fire up and I get black lines in my right eye. Before the prednisone I couldn't walk and had horrible headaches and double vision, so I know I am making progress. It's just frustrating to read all the sites that make it sound like your back to normal once you take the prednisone.
Insomnia and high blood pressure are the side effects I don't seem to have any way to manage. I am working with the GP for the blood pressure and at this point don't want to take sleep aides. I just feel like my brain fog doesn't need anymore help.
Thanks again everyone for all the support.
