the headaches Dakota . . . glad your doc could help you out.
I had regular, intense (not debilitating) headaches regularly from pre-teen through around age 45 (I'm almost 55 now). They did turn into the occasional EXTREME debilitating variety. I identified at least one of my triggers for the larger type. . . chlorine!! The headaches stopped, completely, either my age (hormones) or because I began maintenance anti-inflams for me every changing pain issues . . . then we discovered most everything was auto-immune.
Has yoru doc checked you for APS (anti-phospholipid) and Anti-cardiolipid antibodies??? This can cause thick, sticky blood which can cause several issues . . . strokes, miscarriage, heart valve issues ect. It is treated with blood thinners.
I would think that because the prednisone is helping, you are having vascular headaches which *could* be caused by the thick blood. Just a teeny tiny thought.
Keep us posted how you make out with the extra pred over a period of time.
