I also wanted to let you know I had a strange episode this morning. I took the 7.5mg dose of prednisone this morning rather than adding to the 4.5mg of what I took yesterday and afterwards I started getting a little dizzy and I figured it might be due to needing to eat since I had only had milk with it. So, I ate something and drank some water but it only got worse. I got dizzy and really pale and was shakey,weak and nauseous and then my stomach started cramping. I ended up having a bowel movement and I had just had one earlier that morning that was looser as they have been. This was the worst one yet and after that my body settled down and I felt better. Of course it caused a bit of anxiety from it happening so quickly but besides being tired after 8 hours of sleep and still a little shakey, slight headache and having a rash on my face i feel "better" from all those symptoms. Shortly after that happened I started feeling hungry again. Food just seems to move too quickly through my system and I'm not sure why. It doesn't seem to matter what I eat but this has been going on for about a week now. I remember the time I went to the ER for the syncope episode and they couldn't figure out why I passed out...this felt almost identical to that except I didn't have the bowel movement issues then. I do seem to have a lot more acidity in my stomach and I am wondering if this plays a part and if the Protonix is doing it's job sufficiently? My body is really tired and worn out so I've been trying to rest and drinking gatorade/water. Despite feeling hungry at times I don't have much of an appetite.

I'm lactose intolerate. If I have too much milk it kicks up a fuss in my digestive system.
