As you all have heard.... I stopped absorbing prednisone for some reason and have been on a quest to find something that works . My rheumatologist has no clue .... my endocrinologist was just as mystified. My dermatologist while removing a small cancer suggested that my liver was not processing the prednisone. In those instances , in his practice, he switched to prednisolone. Guess what.... so far so good. I am completely mystified that it has taken a year to have someone else figure out what the matter-was. I have been referred to a gastro doctor . Was not my intestional system after all. I guess I should be happy that a solution seems to be present but I am angry at what it has taken to get there.
