If I could take prednosone forever, I would be happy, ( so far anyway).
I started the pred on wednesday, my fingers were swollen and very painful, today I am almost painfree and the swelling is totally gone.
I have energy and so far no hunger attacks.
But we all know, that pred is not a long term solution.
I have not felt this good in years.
My biggest fear is weight gain and hair growth, facial hair that is.
It would be awesome, if I could feel this good for ever.

Oh man, I hear you.

Some people have problems with Pred, but I think it's AWESOME. I was on 60mg.day for about 5 weeks - tapering down now, I'm at 30 at the moment.

I felt better than I have in 20 years...it was amazing. Tons of energy, no pain, slept fine, and lost 17lbs.

If I didn't know it would kill me, I'd go buy it from some shady dealer on the street, LOL....(JUST KIDDING, folks....) :-P

I was on 60 mg for almost a year. With the Metho they were able to get me down to 40. Without it life is a nightmare. I had a doc tell me once "steroids make you feel good all the way to the grave". Oh man... when I get to start seeing specialists again in Oct I know we will start tapering. I am NOT looking forward to it
