I am so sorry. We have missed you around here. Please come chat with us on a Monday real soon. I am just sick about your recent flare. I know that steroids help us to feel better faster after a flare, but I do not know how often you can have those steroids. I know that there are many side effects to steroid use. They are extremely hard on bones and can strip the calcium if you are not careful. In solumedrol use, there is usually a dip in bone density after a treatment then you tend to rebound if you are good about calcium in your diet. Steroids also tend to be hard on your digestive tract with the acid reflux it causes. Talk to your doctor about the amount of soluledrol you can tolerate.
Good luck and let us know how you are doing.
