I have just started 20mg 3x daily when do side effects appear? Did you gain weight instantly? How much? I am having biopsy for #GiantCellArterisis and I already have body issues. I am petrified of all the side effects. I am also being given it for possible Polymyalgia Rheumatica. If anyone can give me some information I will greatly appreciate it ☀️
I have had serious health problems since I was 26 and I am 56!!! I am not going to list them ALL, just the 3 newest ones. Spinal Fusion last August (still in pain) Cement injection into T5, and the cherry on top =suspected #temporal Arteritis! I had #crp Labs and SED Rate 3 days ago and will get results tomorrow. I feel shitty enough about myself anyway so being on #Prednisone ( on 20mg 2x daily. I am petrified of getting #MoonFace I am not a vain person, but I cannot handle people asking me why I am so fat! I already have Depression and Anxiety so being humiliated about ANOTHER
Was recently dx with lupus cystitis they say it’s rare I live in Saint Louis near one of the world’s highly ranked hospital #BarnesJewishHospital and I’m the first case they’ve ever seen in person its when lupus attacks the bladder, I just recently finished a three day course of 3,000mg prednisone and my first dose of cytoxin chemotherapy it’s gotten off to a super rough start haven’t felt well enough to do much more #Fibromyalgia I’m tired but there’s still too much to fight for
I was diagnosed at a young age, ive been living with lupus since I was 11, I’m 25 now. I have never completely come off of predinose in those years. But this last year I was only a few months away from going off it. I’ve had pretty much all side effects from predinose; weight gain, AVN, andrenal glad issues...
Last week I had my lupus appointment and my lupus is flaring. I haven’t had a big flare like this since I was 19. My doc upped my predinose and all fears of the side effects are really on my mind... even with sleep meds I didn’t sleep tonight and I’m not tired...
I just wish I could have a normal body... #Lupus #MoonFace #LupusNephritis
Going to yet another appointment tomorrow. It’s been four years since I got “sick.” What even is the point anymore. They can’t figure out what’s wrong with me. I want to live but not the life of a stranger, that’s currently happening. A mind, body, & face I don’t even recognize. I’m sure I’ll go in tomorrow & sob & tell my story & leave without anything. Do I even have anything to start with. At 25 I feel like my life is over & I’ll never get it back. #MedicalMystery #Depression #weightgain #BrainFog #MoonFace #ObsessiveCompulsiveDisorder #MuscleWasting #FacialParalysis #HypothyroidismUnderactiveThyroidDisease #RaynaudsDisease
