Hi all you lovely people. Well its 4 weeks now since I took my last dose of Pred. Yippee. For me it has been more than 3 years since diagnosed with GCA/PMR so not too bad though many ups and downs and other problems added on the journey. I got to half a mg every other day and found it very hard to let go of the crutch so to speak.
I had much in the way of withdrawal when I finally let it go but think its something that has been there for a while.....hard to let go.
A few questions remain if anyone could help. My skin is still easily damaged, still have purple marks appearing on arms, some stiffness/pain appears at times, still getting night sweats and fatigue (brick wall type) appears out of nowhere!
I also have weight loss from pred (opposite to most people. I know, trust me to be different) and will test my pre diabetic status with a blood test tomorrow.
