Hi Melissa, welcome to the group. I just read your post and I am so sorry you are going through all of this. I'm 50 years old and I hate it. I can't even imagine what it is like for somone your age to have to deal with all the crap! Yes sadly that is a side effect of predisone. I have a love hate relationship with it. If I don't take it I can't move if I do take it I can get out of bed and swell up like a ballon and roll through the house. They just got to come up with somthing better. Or what would be better yet is to get rid of the flipping disease already!
anyway welcome to the group. Hang in there and keeping posting we love to hear how everyone is doing.
