I went on Prendisone for a month back in 2009 and had a heart spasm which was at the time put down to a reaction to the Prendisone. I have just had another heart/chest pain incident but not on Prendisone and this is still being looked into. Has any others had reactions on Prendisone or is it just Lupus doing its thing. I was told by the gp that Lupus can cause spasm of the veins around the heart. I go to my rhumy next week for the first time and would like to be a bit better informed about Prendisone.
I see that lots of people have weight problems on Prendisone. Is it necessary to take Prendisone? If so why what does it do that other drugs don't?
Thanks for your help!
