Good morning folks,
6 weeks down the road on PRed (began 60 mg now down to 40 mg) and getting used to the roller coaster ride of it all with GCA. I am now sporting the latest look in the news seasons 'Moon Face' but managing to keep weight off with a strict high protein, low carb vegan diet so friends say I look 'bonny', other people just think I am a hamster and have veggie pies stuffed in my cheeks
The problem I want to ask about for those with long term experience is does Pred cause sore gums and roof of mouth. I wake up about 4 - 6 times a night - insomnia has kicked in - and my mouth is like sand paper. But its now too painful to floss or brush and part of the roof of my mouth feels like when you drink a coffee too hot and you scald yourself. I am using a few drops of tea tree oil (my go to for most things) in some water to mouth wash (not a fan of the over the counter ones) and also salt and water. Should I be concerned my teeth are now going to start to say au revoire? I have crowns and implants which cost a small fortune only a year ago....
Any advice gratefully received.
