I went on pred a few weeks ago to stop the never-ending bleeding, and halfway through a "pulse" type taper I got suddenly soooo much worse with D, cramping, urgency - the works, even at night. I increased the dose (to start over) but after a week at 40mg I'm not seeing any improvement and feel horrendous. Is the pred making me worse or do I need to give it more time? How could I be worse on pred than before I went on it? Of course I'm going to talk to the doctor but I would love to hear your collective wisdom.
