I totally agree with eveyrone on here! When i was first diagnosed i was on 40mg of pred for 2 weeks and it was hell..nothing changed..i had bloody diarreah 10 to 12 times a day and was in so much pain..i ended up not being able to get up one morning..had a high fever and was dehydrated (i couldn't even walk!) my doctor told me to rush to the ER immediately..i stayed in the hospital for over 5 weeks...dont let it ever get that bad..get ahold of ur doctor right a way! u can't suffer through this..i learned that the hard way...good luck and i hope u feel better soon!
