So I have been in a major flare, went to MD and am on prednisone for a week. I feel GREAT!!!. No brain fog, no pain or stiffness other than very first in am and in evening, sleeping great, not bad on the eating ( I stashed apples at work and random places for munchie attacks).
I am so happy and so, so scared. I have read some people can feel the effects much longer than the week or so taken. But, if this works so well is there not something else out there that has less dangerous side effects and could still help me feel this good? I feel like a curtain has been lifted and the world is clearer and brighter. I come home from work. Have a short nap, that I can wake up from, and then have the evening with my family. My kids are so happy they are going to bed before me. I am productive at work and am not at risk of tears from pain or the head bobs from fatigue. I was able to clearly compose a proposal paper with no major brain farts. My todo list has been decreasing. I am trying to pace myself and not overdo. No crazy dancing or running like a chicken, hence the post work rest, but I feel great. HOW CAN THIS STAY?? There must be a way! Thoughts?
