Went on Saturday for my follow up appt with my consultant ( Private). He was a little perplexed that I was really no better. Felt that maybe my gut was not digesting the Pred aswell as it should , so suggested an injection as a booster. Still carry on tho , with 15 mg a day., which I do with breakfast.Said I should feel the affects in 48 hours. All day y’day my fingers were tingly. Today I feel no great difference. Yes I can make a fist, yes I can walk, but my arms wrists and shoulders hurt . Feel exhausted from a short trip around a supermarket.Came home ate, and fell straight to sleep. Told him about my Pool walk .He said it was something I should not do , nor bike ride Go Running ( LOL) . I questioned him why he never said this at our first meeting??Wanted to do a chest X-ray? I said No. Just seemed to be building up a bill .
Did say my blood reading of 26 has reduced to 6 .. so the Pred must be working ! Really?
If no better come back in a week
Otherwise in 3 weeks for another Pred shot.
And a blood test 5 days before any appt
Any advice folks. ???
