I seem to be alternating between such heavy fatigue I sleep all day and night and being unable to sleep. I actually do not feel like it is the pred. taper because I am not any worse at a lower dose. I think it is being 6 months pregnant with lupus, but still am not happy. The baby is doing fine and I have as of yet gained no weight. I may even be losing weight now that the pred is coming down. I also have lost my apitite so when I said I was hungry this morning my husband jumped on it and ran to McD's and got me a breakfast meal. Apparently I am worrying him since I rarely want to eat anymore. Funny, at 10mg I was hungry all the time at 7.5 and 5mg I am rarely hungry. Anyone have any ideas for the fatigue/insomnia or the lack of apitite?
