Hi. I just wondered if many others find their asthma getting worse when it's windy outside?
jwb43, When you take prednisone, it must first be metabolized in the liver to its active form, prednisolone. And while oral prednisone and prednisolone are used interchangeably, the latter ( for obvious reasons ) is more readily absorbed by the body.
I have had PMR since January 2016 , and am on prednisolone 20mg ,have had Achilles tendonitis and still ankles swollen very much although the tendonitis is slightly better ,have had trouble sleeping even though been put on Zopiclone and codeine phosphate Has anyone got any suggestions, what will help me sleep
Hi everyone, I was prescribed Prednisolone - Gastro- Resistant tablets by my Rheumatologist at the hospital. I have irritable bowel syndrome as a result of lupus and the none- coated ones play havoc on my stomach and bowel.
Hi To All Been in remission for 2yrs but unfortunately im having the nose bleeds and very aching body. All was good untill I was told to stop prednisolone 5mg to 2.5mg then stopped 6 weeks ago thats when everything went pear shaped , started at 80mg pred 2 yrs ago and now today im acheing all over.
Hi, I just found this forum by chance, I started having rheumatic problems at the beginning of the year, and I am still having tests to find out what is causing the rheumatoid arthritis symptoms, and currently taking 10mg prednisolone, so I haven't been diagnosed with PMR or GCA, but I am finding reading peoples experiences, I have some of the symptoms mentioned, particularly the muscle spasms, I mentioned this to my doctor and told her how awful the pain had been, although it is now a lot better apart from it still hurting if I sneeze etc, also for some reason which sounds a bit odd but I seem to be taking a second breath as if I had been crying or upset, don't know if anyone else has had this or is it just me, anyway the doctor just said you have pulled a muscle, didn't even check it out, I think now I am going to mention it again.
Oh well, up since 4 a.m. Unable to breath properly due to a COPD Flare up, but I've learned not to panic, that only makes it worse, now sat listening to Radio 4, having just managed to make a cup of tea ( took me 20 minutes to get energy to move ) waiting for 8:00 so I can ring Doc's. Hoping for a short course of prednisolone as that seems to be the only effective treatment for me.
