I just ended a pred taper about a month ago and SOMEHOW managed to avoid all side effects, I thought I was in the clear until I started to flare up again...back on the pred...I feel the side effects coming on now...with a vengeance. My cheeks are starting to get sore and I got little black hairs coming it around my mouth, and Im just all achy and moody...oh lordy. Honestly, CRY if it makes you feel better. Throw yourself a pitty party and snuggle up and watch a movie. I know you're a manly man, but hey...we all have our days!
