I have had prednisone help me with pain control. I would stay on it if it didn't have so many bad side effects for long term. There has been other fibromites take it daily. Your husband might of been going through an auto immune response. Yes, it gives you energy and it makes you hungry, but they are not good for long term use. My rheumatologist gave me prednisone for awhile and I love it!
I am glad your husband getting some relief. In some patients the side effects are not to worry so much about
if it gives a person relief for comfort measures.
