sad  Hey everyone, I know that I posted earlier this week that I had taken my last Pred, thanks for all your comments. But since then I feel like I am in drug withdrawls, I've been fighting a migraine for five days, I'm extremely shakey, nauseous, extremely irritable, and just feel completely out of control of my brain, I can't sleep, and my whole body hurts, I feel like I got hit by a MAC truck. Sometimes I can't stop eating and other times just the site of food makes me puke, no there is no chance I'm pregnant.
I was just wondering if anyone has had these symptoms and what they did or if they think that I should contact the doctor or if it is normal and I just need to let it run its course.
Thanks in advance!!!

Hey Emilie

Hope you are feeling much better so far as flare up is concerned. So far as the symptoms which you have mentioned are concerned, I too used to have them. There is a kind of heaviness. You feel you can't move your body. Lethargic, irritable, mood swings, body aches, and the likes.

So far as food is concerned, try something, which would help you in appetite. I used to have very tangy stuffs. Fresh lime soda, Ice creams,

Try to relax. Build your stamina by eating enough calories. Meditate. These withdrawal symptoms would go away very soon. Take care and keep us posted.
Have a sizzler.
