Thanks Omega and Babs,
Just after posting I had really bad time with IBS or something, maybe because the pred got my metabolism going again and made me have to go and lots of pain, but took the pain stuff and its ok now. Dont know if its normal for pred to have a laxative effect or something when you first take it, was hard on stomach too, even with food but I'm having some gi problems. I hope its not a problem from the biopsy site in my small intestine. I am thinking not, no fever, but I don't get , but still probably my body adjusting to pred. I feel really great and calm and my face is not red, though you can see my spider veins more now, and its just great I wish I could feel like this every day. Mentally I'm clearer and my vision is better, must really get some sweeling in my eyes or something becuase its usually hard to focus and I keep getting blurry and really having to concentrate to see but Now i don't. lungs better too.
