I was put on Prednisone for my hearing problem...not fibro...but I had already developed fibro. Anyway, the first few days I felt terrific..just like you do, and I pretty much landscaped my front yard! LOL Then, after about a week and and half I started getting quite sick. The Prednisone was shutting down my immune system and I was catching everything that came along. I was sooo sick.
Prednisone can be helpful in some instances but I know I don't want to take it unless it is short term. Actually, I was on a Prednisone dose pack for an illness and took my last pill and came down with the pain of fibro that night! Prednisone is very hard on your bones, too. I hope your doctor finds something else to put your pain under control. With fibro, pain goes with the territory. You just need to learn how to control it.
