Since starting prednisone treatment 10 months ago
my immune system has taken a hammering, with one flu and bronchitis attack after another. I am at present on 8mg pred, but feel so bunged up with cold, coughing and rib pains from the constant coughing...that I don't know if my joints are aching from the flu or I'm having a flare
My ears are blocked up and I have a heavy dull head ache ...my eyes are watering and actually look like two pee holes in the snow ...
I have no fever, just feel completely drained. Drinking lots of hot tea with lemon squeezed into it ...(no sweeteners or sugar )
Has anyone else felt so susceptible to these viruses since suffering pmr ?
I'll be ok I'm sure in a couple of days,
