I am constantly anxious. 24 hours a day. It's all radiating on my left side from face, my throat, all the way to my left hip. It's ripping at my body.
Is this prednisone withdrawal? I'm at 6 - 0 -6 -0
Is this poor adrenal function?
Is this just an inability to cope with anything?
Please I need help. I can't get in to see an endocrinologist now, none available. My GI wants me on more pred because I have poor adrenal function. My PDOC wants me on higher doses of drugs (zyprexa).
I've tried breathing and stretching. None of it works.
