Here is the question. With the report coming out that there is little difference in people taking long term steroids (besides cataracts), do we still have to be consumed/alarmed by our steroid load? I seem to be someone who needs about 12 ish even after 20 months. I just added 2 today because my shoulders have been achy and I feel just brittle and fragile. I have to be able to work part time until spring and I am just to the point to say carry on with my current dose until I am done with work. I am resting lots but that is not quite cutting it. Is there any point to trying a sparer with additional side effects. I am fortunate in that steroids just cause me funny weight and the usual stuff. Nothing drastic.
Thoughts from the experienced ones please. Please and thank you.
