Hi Numb, the pred gives me cramping in my calves, inner thighs, shins, arches and toes if I keep my feet elevated for longer than an hour or so, I try to take potassium, I take potassium supplements and 200mg a day (I thougt it was 1200mg a day but it's 1200mg of glucosamine not potassium) and drink fortified cran/rasp juice by lnngers it has 480mg of potassium per 8oz. I got tired of banana's.
I was tired and unmotivated and I went back to the gym 4 times last week and it really helped me. Though I am still unmotivated, I think that may be the pred blues or something.
I take all my aza at night and it did help some, but still kinda tired all the time, but I am on a lot of drugs, so not exactly sure what is caused from what.
I have been getting super dry eyes lately and that is really bugging me.........
