Yikes.... I had voiced my concerns about
this to my neuro. I only agreed to it because of the continuing neuropathy that I experience. We agreed to do the blood work first and do the prednisone only if everything came back okay.

40mg X 4 days
20mg X 2 days
I do not have a LLMD and have been working with the ID and Neuro. I went to see a doc recommended by a friend who didn't turn out to be a LLMD. I have been trying to get in to see another well know LLMD in the area but I get an answering machine every time I call the office and they haven't returned my calls. It seems like a real hit and miss process in finding a good LLMD that you can trust.
My lumbar puncture did show positive for MS, but I show no lesions on my MRI's. I have another MRI scheduled in May at my six month interval. So, I'm not sure what to do now.... Just started day two of the prednisone. Guess, I should have submitted this post a few weeks back, although I knew that this topic would draw a strong caution from most.
Might this be the kind of thing that I can just tapper off or stop the dose if I start to notice ill effects?
I really appreciate all of your comments.
