Hi redrose, been sick nd not on computer, but doing better. Glad Alexander s doing so so well. He is so smart like his mama. I had a problem going off pred last time and hadto go back on right away, got like a horrible backlash effect, feeling worse than before, really frightening. I may have had a ministroke. Hard to say, felt so bad didn't go to the hospital. You might bug the docs to do some blood work to check your vitamins with regard to your bones so you can increase those vitamins as well as taking medicine. Hopefully they will find something for you to take. They might check yuor estrogen levels too and whatever else. Maybe there are some other ways you can supplement to help protect your bones. I hope your flare ends and you can get off the pred and build up your bones andhave relief.
Hope all is well with you and family. As always, I keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Alexander sounds like a real sweetie.
