Hi..I've never been on pred or on 6-mp...but I would think it could be a combo of the meds and maybe not enough food intake or as simple as dehydration?
You can help the nausea with maybe an antinausea med. Gravol comes in a ginger tablet..maybe that could help if you don't want to take another "medication".
There are also antinausea bands to wear on your wrist or something to put behind your ear...something to consider.
There are times when I've been busy with not enough sleep and when I get home I just need to lay on the floor with my legs up against a wall or doorway. I stretch my arms out to the sides and I can feel my body "regenerating"...it's amazing. That, however, could be because I'm feeling distressed from being too busy.
You might do well with a 5 minute lay-down, but feet should be higher than your head....
I do remember having that a lot when I ws flaring in past years...food helped as well as water and a laydown.
Hope this passes soon....
