Welcome John, i understand your frustration and confusion, I have an Endo who's been trying to get me tested for "adrenal fatigue" for 3 years! but my insurance won't pay because i already have a CFS/EBV and Hashimoto's Thyroid diagnosis. Yes prednisone is a wonder drug for people like us and it just as dangerous and destructive to our bodies as the other drugs that give us that "top of the world" feeling. I know somebody already mentioned that it can cause "adrenal fatigue" absolutely if its abused or even prescribed long-term. That's why it come in short-acting packs. It can also cause violent mood swings and psychosis in people with mental disorders(one of those would be me). I would say you are on the right track with the supplements and the diet, you could try going gluten/wheat-free for a couple months, it seems to help everybody who tries it irregardless of what their diagnosis. Hang in there and Keep in Touch.
